Hey Casey, no...not mine...it's my dads car..I'm just cleaning it up and sorting out a few things over the winter (new carpet, some engine bay detailing and performing what Mercedes call the E service). If it were mine it would be sitting MUCH lower and running widened steelies or old skool Ronal alloys O:)

Alrighty...so hunt is on for a pair of 901 or for that matter ANY high offset Porsche Fuchs....made some errors in my research and I have a pair of 15X7 reps that are ET 23.3...and I need something more in the EARLY fuchs....specifically ET 36 and higher...in 15X6 or 15X7....hell even Fuch reps with that would be cool...going for the polished and black look with painted caps (thanks Greg).

Anybody got anything in their stash?
So far I've been checking the Samba and ebay...nothing decent yet.
Pair of these would be sick.

Ok...been driving this a bit this summer...had some fun...but it appears as though the engine is in need of some lovin....and I've always felt it needs more than the 1641cc that I built (Really...you don't want me to build you a motor). So pretty such the gland nut has loosened up on my engine and there are oil leaks and exhaust leaks....blah blah blah.
So yeah...yanked the motor today, time for more jam.
Who do you guys recommend for getting a decent bang for the buck 2L or bigger engine?
Likewise a proper tranny to back it up would be nice.
Suggestions?
