But ya, I used to have a 99 c43 w202, prolly the longest car i ever owned, 3 years lol



Nice c43 those cars are beast for their age man. Love the brabus wheels too

That sucks that you lost the roof spoiler. I double taped the **** out of mine but it also wasn't bowed upward. Every once in a while the classifieds will have one for sale keep an eye out

Hey I was wondering where did you buy that lip kit? Was it from Ebay?

I would lower it and switch the wheels. Im not gonna lie, it looks like a monster truck, from the first picture i thought you had air and had it raised all the way up.

But...Clean execution. Everything flows well, just imo the wheels need to go and the gap is huge. Since the kit is so wide like the ings, why not throw some conservative 20" rims on? This way when you lower the car and close up the gap,( tuck it to the tire line imo ) you will not be as low as you would be tucked on 18s or 19s.... This way you can look good, and scrape less


... just my two pennies though

I would just like to say awesome to you for not being afraid to rock the 18's. I'm personally not a fan at all of 20's. I can't see the point-they're way more expensive for a terrible ride quality and half (or less) the tire life and no improvement in performance whatsoever. Not to mention you have to drag your car on the ground practically just to keep your car from looking like an SUV. Go 18's!

Huge problem is I have had bad luck with any rims larger than 18"... You will need to go 30 series tires with 19's and will be wayyyyy thin for bay area pot hole roads. I had a set of 20's on my other car and one got bent beyond repair in 5 days from buying em. I live in the east bay and drive to oakland frequently, prolly the worst condition roads out there imo.. I will be lowering it on some coilovers and should look fine after i get rid of the wheel gap, just cant do everything all at once lol

I saw your car at H&H.

30 series is no big deal haha. I'm running 225/245 tires on a 9.5/10.5 wheel. Just look out for potholes and you'll be cool. :3

I have 19" wheels with 225/35 and 255/35 tires on Atlanta roads - No issues so far (2 years) as long as you avoid the big stuff.

Car looks good.

I see. Im from the bay area aswell? Are you coming out to the meet tonight? I had my 19s and never used to dodge potholes, they were never bent. Same with the 20s I am on now. I think the quality of the wheels also play a major factor. Cast VS forged etc

Yup that was me, Raymond at H and H hooked it up with the paint and install. He did an ok job, few small things i would have liked him to have done tho, ie paint the mounting screws the same color to blend in, he left them all black
