Hey guys,

These are spectacular pics from an official MB calendar by photographer Dietmar Henneka.
The body panels were completely removed and chrome plated to perfection!
I also read that in the pic of the SL55, a pilot was flying overhead and saw it shinning like crazy and so he came looking to see what it was after he landed!

These pics are so amazing i have trouble believeing that this is true! ;-]

I have never ever considered my taste gawdy, but dear Gawd I think that chrome plated SL looks hotter than hot!! (Its probably the photography)

Hey RGowani, Time to chrome plate yours?

ummmm, The car marked CLK is actually a CL You can come to know from the sheer length of the car, & the rear headlights and yes the image #5 is definitely the E-Class and not the S. I never read the namings on the image, just assumed everyone would know which is which

Hey guys,

Your right, i was just copying what was in the filenames (which was obviously wrong) since i cldnt look at the pics while uploading.
(Have edited/corrected for future readers.)

And grim think about it...this is the 2004 calendar...so that means they have obviously been around for more that four months now!!

and RG, other than silver and black i really dont like the SL in any other colours!! (the dark blue would be my distant 3d choice though...)

cheers
