    S55 AMG (luxo-tuned)

    Here are a few pics of my friend Troy's S-Classe that won 1st place at the recent carshow this past weekend here in Honolulu......

    While the "VIP" thing really isn't my style, I think your bud did a good job on this car.....looks real nice. The fender gills actually work pretty well ::thumbs:: (unusual IMHO save the e46 M3)

    Nice car I like it.

    I just wish when people do VIP they at least do something with the engine other than adding computer chips to it.

    Thanks. It is a full Junction Produce kit that had to be significantly modified to fit the AMG version, since the kit was only supposed to fit the regular s500. The whole point of VIP styling usually is not to do motor mods because the car is already a V8. It is all about fitment & rolling smooth.

    How smooth can it be rolling? look at the tires on that thing. But i guess the airbags help alot.

    Still an awsome car.


    And anyone know hard it would be to put curtains on a 190? lol

    I guess you did not understand my statement, rolling smooth is about not reckless driving or speeding. That is what I was referring to.

    though if I had a s55 amg I would keep it stock cause I think the styling on s55 amg is flawless, I like this one a lot. You can tell that everything's tastefully modded and somehow it doesn't look over done.

    Also the front makes it look a lot like the new cls500, very nice.

    F-ing awesome. Tasteful mods is what I like about luxo style. I see your car in the background too.
