    Got my Monoblocks on - pics

    Finally got the 18" Monoblocks mounted - no spacers for now, but I did order a set of 15mm H+R spacers to try. Thanks for the advice!

    A pretty familiar sight, a 500E with Monoblocks. And still, I can't stop looking I like it!

    Lovely! And Get Outta Here! The 5th w124 500E/E500 then I know of that resides within 2 miles.... I recognize that plaza --- Skyline Center Plaza with the 99 Ranch Market there --- with O'Reilley's Auto there (and is that Wheel Works if I remember correctly?)

    Yes, that's Skyline Plaza. Good catch! That's funny -- we need to have a meetup! We do seem to have an unfair share of all 500E's prowling the Bay Area. Local Craigslist has like four different ones up for sale right now! We're spoiled.

    Your 500E looks fantastic with the monoblocks Yes I AM biased. You guys need to get together and take some pictures away.

    Lookin great! Some wheels are just made for a given manufacturer... Monos for Merc, Avus for Audi's... and M-parallels for the bimmers.

    I'd love to get a set for my 420, but the 17" ET 42s seem hard to come by. Jealous of your fabulously wide 500 fenders!

    Very nice! Mono blocs just seem to accentuate and balance the fender flares very nicely imo and best on silver (im biased)

    While it is a familiar sight, they look awesome !
    I think silver, smoke silver and Pearl Grey 500e's look the best with mono's.

    Wow !
    I think you guys up there have the highest number and tight x-mile radius cluster of 500E's.
    I thought Socal had a lot of .036's, but not in that tight of an x-mile radius.
