I had a chance to take some better pics. They still didnt turn out as I thought they would but they give you a better idea of how the CL's really look on the 210 chassis. If you have a brilliant silver car they match the color perfectly and the machined lip is shiny but not too flashy.

Thanks guys, I actually took those pictures at a JC called College of the Canyons. They have a new parking structure at the top of their campus.

From what I have heard they are one of the biggest JC's in California and seem to have a good education program. But they probably need some new IS people its seems. I never went there for school but a lot of my friends have been there.

C32 AMG, Volvo S80T6
that car looks unbelieveable

As much as I like this C32, I cant wait till my E50/55 gets here next year. That looks amazing. I love the stance of the car and those wheels make a serious difference to the stock wheels. I have the same color so I know it is not as hard to keep clean as other colors. It can be fairly dirty and still look good. Good luck with it! I really does look phat!

real nice too....the W210 is damn

Just one question, your bilstein sport schocks by themselves didnt lowered the car did they? What lowered were just the H&R springs?


Thanks

Hey guys thanks a lot for the positive comments. I live in Cali so its relatively rain free especially this season so my car has been more clean.
DoubleNickel I have a monthly pass to my friends carwash so I can go as many times as I want and they dont even run it through the normal machine. I have the same guy wash it and he uses an air hose to shoot all the water out of the cracks too.
LorinserLV2, the springs control the ride height while the Bilsteins stiffen up the ride. I actually lowered the car with the H&R's and then replaced the shocks a few months later. I swear the shorter shocks make my car look lower than with the factory shocks with the H&R;s but that may just be me smoking crack.

I'm new to this forum. I saw the pics of you car...VERY NICE. I have a black E320 and am looking for new wheels. Although I like the silver on your car I don't think they would look as good on my black car. I am looking for polished or smoked chrome wheels. I know these can be chromed, but can they be completely polished like the lip? Polished is what I perfer in order for them to stand out more. Also, where did you get wheels? Again, NICE. Thanks for response.

Actually the shocks improved the ride with the H&R's. The factory shocks kept compressing out of their optimal area once I lowered the car and the ride I felt was too soft and the shocks couldnt handle the flex in hard turns.

Pep you can get the CL's with just the lip polished. You'll have to send the wheels to chrome of polishing shop to do it but its been done. I have seen it and it looks very nice. Personally I am not a big fan of chrome and have seen these wheels on black benzes and its looks awesome (without chrome). I think if you polished just the lip - your car would look great.

Vic,

It looks like those CL rims are going to be the de facto rims of the w211 sport pack. pretty sweet.

also, did you notice any degradation in ride or handling when you went from the BBS LM's to the CL rim? my guess is that the CL rim weighs a bit more, adding to unsprung weight and rotational mass.

The ride is the same in regards to comfort but I do think the increase in unsprung weight does slow the car down just a little bit.

Nice wheels

Hey Vic,

Nice wheels...Actually, I like your BBS LM's better though.
Are you thinking of selling your LM's?? Let me know ok!!

I see that you have S-03 PP's on your car.
Actually, I just got a new set myself...stock tire size.

I noticed that the new S-03 PP tires are not as soft as my original Pilot Sport's and therefore, my launches off the line was not as good as with the original Pilot's. I noticed that there was a lot more wheel spin and I can't seem to get a good launch.

On my original tires, I got the best launches with ESP off and flooring it.
With my new S-03's, I can't seem to get a good launch.
Well at least I haven't as of yet.
I've had my tires one week.

My question is, did you experience the same thing and how did you launch the car to get the times that you posted with your G-tech timer?

Comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Regards,
Edmond
