Really enjoyed looking through your car's timeline. Your CLS looks great and I love what you did with the OEM wheels by having them all the same width so there is more concavity for the fronts. The matte black wrap looks good too. Where did you purchase your OEM wheels from btw?

Nice. Glad you ditched those wheels! Not a huge fan if the blacked out grille and star when it was still silver. Looked a bit out of place. Surprisingly, the matte black looks good too!

Thinking of a 172 pulley and few cooling mods, nothing too much

Matte blue wrap? Are you sticking with 19s due to road conditions?

Wrapped by Republic Wraps in DTLA. You'd def need a legit drop and dope wheels to pull something like that off.

I think your matte silver was the best "stage" IMO would have been better without the smoked tails, painted headlights and blacked out grill.

Why were the Sevas wheels a fail? ...also when you painted your calipers, how did you keep the "AMG" logo intact? thanks

From what I know, Sevas went out of business due to quality of wheels. Mine were built incorrectly lol. Calipers were freshly painted so they stayed but half of my logo is off
