This guy has rims just like mine, but wait a minute that's my car. I should get commission from his sales don't you think? Least he was nice enough to block my tag out.

I'm sure we are all curious as to how this picture was obtained? Did you buy them from him and then post in the forum?

No I didn't buy from him. Mine were factory installed. Occasionally I browse eBay for the w212 and w211 just to see what kind of stuff they have out. Imagine my amazement when I figured out that was my car. Lol. Hype thanks for the good laugh!! He snagged my pic somewhere then puts his label on it I guess to prevent someone stealing it from him, sheesh. At least he has good taste.

600 posts a mile stone? Been a member for 8 years, so not many forum miles, kinda like my cars. Hype that pic is in my driveway. I took it but not sure where I posted it at, probably here at one time or another. I bet it's one of mine in the picture thread.

Brad, how you keep the rims so clean? Are you not using MB brakes pads?

Yea but I thought the w212 didn't have the dusting problem of the 211? Mine stay clean all the time and is nothing like my 211. I put ceramics on my 211 allthough it helped it still gets pretty dirty. These only get a hint of dusting and the rest of the car gets dirtier before the rims look dirty unlike the 211. The 211 front rims start looking bad way before the car needed washed.

I hope ZS-R doesn't get mad but I'm going to use his pic in my sig. lol

Imitation is the best form of flattery. You have the car and he has the pictures so you have the better half. You have a nice looking car so I would take it as a wired compliment.

I certainly miss the E I had, from a style, looks original, standpoint, still a great looking car and will be for years to come: you don't put many miles on the baby I think

More than likely he found the pic via keyword using google images.
