The Godfather is back in a Benz!
Good Lord, it's been two years without a Benz, and I've been going crazy! Anyway I'm back in one and feeling much better. I sold my S4 Avant, so this is the new project car.
I picked up this '07 S550 last Tuesday with 49K miles, AMG sport package, panoramic roof, rear seat package, and most other accoutrements. The only thing I'm missing are the night assist, backup camera and trunk closer, all of which I would have loved to get. But if it were between that and the pano and rear seat package, I would take the latter...as I have. :P
I'll post here to show you the progress of the mods.
First, 2010+ LED style taillights. Those are the Eagle Eyes from ExpressParts. I was at first reluctant buying non OEM, but these are very well built. Zero drama to install and they look light years ahead from the stock ones. What a refresh! And the LED turn signals are crisp!
I have a couple of small mods planned for this week. I'll post pics when I get them installed.
For now, some pics of the car for everyone to enjoy!

That's about to change....
That's all for now. Nothing too exciting... yet!

Sexy! The first thing I thought was you need to change the back lights to the new ones. And as I scrolled down, i realized you thought the same as meԳեվոջանյան

Congratulations! I'm subscribed and can't wait for more. You have chosen a great color there and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
P.S. Ever find those pics from the hanger way back when? lol“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
