    New Guy SC W201

    Hey all, name is Mikey, I am 22 years old and drive a '92 190e 2.3. This is my first w201 but not my first project. I'll throw some pics up after work of the w201 but enjoy some pics of my e30 and my e36. I also have a set of BBS RS008s (16x7 24 offset) that I am trying to figure out proper tire size for. I am thinking 205/45/16?

    I'd say you are spot on with the tire guess, the offset on those isnt too deep so if you go too low you may need a lower profile tire and or more stretch but if you dont completely slam the thing, you should be good. Welcome the rev!

    Go for some euro headlights asap! hah the nam ones are looking a little tired. looks like it shouldnt take much work to turn that thing into a real head turner. I like how the bbs alloys should match the pinstripe. subtle but sexy.

    I can't wait to mount up these wheels and tires, only thing is... I am waiting on a new key from the dealer so I can pull it into my shop. My key is broke-dick. I need to get the pin stripe re-done, it has seen better days.

    Anyone know where I can get the rear door cladding?
