Star Shots - Show us your Ride!

Post by AMG » Tue 06 Jan, 2009 1:25 pm

Post Pictures of your car here!

Don't forget to include details such as year, colour etc.
If your car has a story, for example; how you came across it, - put it in here with the pictures. It's always nice to read someone else's experiences.

If you've done any modifications / improvments, Here's the place to show them off - Post lots of pics!

It's not a bad idea to revisit your post every now and then, to make sure your pictures are still up. We'd also like to encourage those who do post a Project car, and supply us with updates, to come back to your original post and edit it, rather than make a new post each time, by replying. It will help keep all your pictures and progress in one spot!

It also makes your post MUCH easier to view.

If you're unsure on how to upload pictures, go to the posting tutorial on the main board and try the test posting page, Don't forget to sign yourself up for a free account on imageshack / photobucket etc.. if you haven't already.

Show us ya Pics! :)

Dan,

No offence but I'm thinking a ML500 with a Brabus badge maybe. Doesn't look angry enough to be a Brabus.

Regards,

Giles

Not taken Giles...But the picture that you post is a late model ML ( 2008 maybe)...The other is an earlyer ...

The car that I post had in the rims the BRABUS logo, in the interiour of the car too...
The first owner of this car was an important bussinesman (as I remember) and he not buyed a car with a badge or a reproduction of body elements!

And if you want to believe me, here are some more pictures with an ML BRABUS that is for sale...You can see that they are almost the same!

The silver one looks original but the black one still has too many MB stars. There is one on the tailgate and it has MB mud flaps (the black rubber things behind the rear wheels). Can't imagine Brabus having any use for those. They'd probably slow you down which is toatally against the Brabus theory of "Go faster at any cost". Dan your the one that has seen it in the flesh and I'll respect your word.

Keep a look out for anymore Brabus and post your pictures as we don't get to see them often in Australia.

Regards,

Giles

When I will see the car again and if the owner is there I will ask him about the car... :D I hope he will be kind to answer me...

Those mud flaps (quards) I believe are needed in our worst roads, maybe the car is going on country roads too...

Im my town is a ML63 AMG too, 2008 model...But he is driving so fast that I never get a chance to take a photo... :shock:

I just came back from the city and I see the ML in traffic but I can not stop to ask the owner if his car is the real thing but a few days ago I see another car, a GL that I`m sure that is not real...GL 65 AMG...( I think they never made an 65 AMG) It can be seen that the AMG logo is smaller than the other ... But who knows... :lol:

Here's my real W163. 2.7l diesel. Great for towing the van.

Here is my new ride.

It is a 99 ML270 or W163 for purist. It has 118k Kms and I am still getting more information for it.

I paid $3500 unregistered. The BA/ESP light is on and the windscreen has a crack. It had been sitting around for over 12 months and after about 2 minutes of cranking it started.

I have taking it for a short drive .

There is a brake smell, so think one of the brake calipers might be siezed. Apart from that it went OK. A little underpowered I thought.

Will look at injectors and manifold when funds/time permits.

After my W210 met an unfortunate end I wanted a wagon, this is it! While no direct substitute for an E class it is a great car and handles very well for an SUV. It was either this or a Cayenne, just had to keep one MB in my life :smile:
