Default Mercedes C220 CDI with Lorinser body kit

Its quite some days back on of my best friend send me these photos. He has fitted new C220 CDI with Lourisner body kit. By now he might have also put the new wheels.

He is from Chennai & is from a leading business house, but he is not interested in fame hence I wind here regarding him. But I can't control to say that he has got a appreciatable collection of some classic beauties. The photo is snapped from his personal garage, which is also quite famous in the city. So all those cars in the background are part of his & his brother's collection, which inclusde Merc 480SEC, 280SEC (Covertible), Mecr 300GD, Landrover, Valkyre, etc . He used to do all the work from here & had got a couple of very good mechanics in hand. You can see the G-wagen's hood is removed, he is fitting a 300 TD (turbo) engine to it to enhance power.

Dont take this badly, but without the wheels, it looks really bad. Hopefully the wheels will make all the difference. Hope he sends you pictures with wheels soon. Would be interesting to see how much difference it makes.
Nice garage... Nice collection. Love the Land Rover pick up!

I love how Lourisner rear bumpers integrate the exhausts so well !

But the standard alloys and chrome lining on the tailamps ruin it for me.

The bodykits look really impressive and needless to say the lovely collection.
What could be the yellow beauty?

Awesome collection out there.
Why do Lorinser and Mansory add hideous chrome fittings and ruin exotics and charge a premium for ruining them?!

Personally dont like the kit apart from the wheels.

It would have been better if he would have got an AMG kit.
None the less to each his own.

The cars in his garage are amazing though.

Friends, this photo is almost 2 months old, I think he might have already changed the wheels by now. Because when he had a 300CE (W124 coupe) he has loaded it with a Brabus wheels. So he would have defenetly put the suitable wheels. Anyway I've mailed him to send the new photos, but I think he is not in station as I can't get him in mobile.
