    Hard to tell from the pic but how does it attach to the rear seat? Is it using the rear seat belt clip?

    the rear passenger buckle was removed because the bolt was not long enough to hold both. the racket attachment connects to the old buckle bolt hole under the seat and is powered through a tilt/g sensor connected to ignition on. if i get a longer bolt i can have both attached like i do in the driver seat but no one sits behind me anyway :0b

    My 1000+ mile trip hauling over 1,000lbs with the 8v was a success. Damn 8v is a TORQUE monster, she would not quit no mater what. Not once did the engine try to overheat. Manual tranny swap is a must if you're hauling as much as I did.

    Nice Champagne!

    I live in a very up scale neighborhood. Lot's of Mercedes and BMW's, etc.. I pull up to the light behind an CLK500. Beautiful car. Maybe 2-3 years old at the most. I pull out and it's a 4 lane highway the neighborhood is off of. He gets in the middle right lane and I pass him in a rush in the far right lane. He punches in and so do I. He must have not floored his car because he let me blow his doors off. I exit the highway onto the Loop and he follows and gets close to me. I floor my car and throw it down in third and before I know it I'm doing 115 and climbing, he's 'trying' to keep up with me and can't. (yeah, right!) GPS says I'm doing 124 when I let off the gas and he's a not far behind me. I slow down to 60 and he gets up next to me and gives me the thumbs up. I know that CLK could do 150mph. He was just being nice by letting me win. I appreciate his kindness.

    My car really runs like a top. That's the first time I've ever drove it that fast and at 124 she felt as if she was going to keep going and going.

    I <3 my 190e.

    VS

    That was the most fun I've had in my car since I've owned it.

    I'm guilty of this too. haha. The diesels make a mess from time to time, and my buddy's 560SEL with leaking SLS system doesnt help.

    My younger sister's celica left most of those stains on the driveway when she blew up the engine and thought it would smart to give it to me to fix only to have me haul it to pick n pull.

    Worry about your own house and not mine.

    I dont think this stick is big enough LOL
