    B66031007 in USA is $915 MSRP. That's crazy dough...

    The staggered fitment you describe above is, I believe, the factory W210 E55 AMG wheel setup. Should be able to find a set of those for ±$1k used in nice shape.

    True that! It was also a USA 129 "Sport" package staggered fittment starting 1996-ish...

    I haven't checked with my dealer or any other source yet, but do you know off the top of your head if they are even available in the States?
    Correct numbers, and they are all available...

    These are really quite common wheels, at least here in Europe. Frequently used on the W210.

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    My first car ever...and first Sierra Cosworth of mine...sadly it got stolen just after ive totally rebuild the engine with FACTORY new Head..which was damn expensive..


    My second car....A lovely Ford Sierra Rs Cosworth 1986 mod.i miss that car..(for you who dont know...its the car to the left..



    My third car was an Ford Escort Rs Cosworth...with original WRC bumper and rear wing..and it went through some changes in the years i had it..






    Massive brakes and custom made centerlock adapters




    Engine bay





    4th car....MB 230e w124...bought it with demolished oilpan on the engine...fixed it..and gave it a proper clean.very nice color i think
    It is also mine that big RED Ford 350 Customline van in the background




    5th car..Ford Sierra Cosworth 4wheel drive Sapphire

    Was restoring the car....had alot of rust...restored the total rear end of the car...painted underneath..and got tired of it halfwaythrough...and sold the car...because of lack of storage space..and stuff..





    Restored inlet manifold




    Standing outside in the cold outside the mercedes dealership...during the restoration process...




    Then it was time for the Ford Focus Rs...first when i got it...almost standard..loving the look..and i also love amber turnsignals...so i "downgraded" the look and went for the Amber ones..as clear lamps in the front is standard on the Ford Focus Rs



    my winter car with the OZ wheels "on".hehe



    Last version of my Ford Focus Rs as you may have seen it earlier in this thread.









    I also had this just after the 230e w124......This is a 95 E280.
    Awesome car...made new engine wiring harness for the car...alot of work..but fun work i think









    Well...dunno where this "rush of pictures " came from...but hope you liked them..Kinda just wanted to show you what i have been doing before the 500e "came into my life"

    Cheers

    Awesome cars Lowman! A little sacrilegious on this forum perhaps. If the second sentence in this paragraph is more important than the first, they could likely be interchanged.
    Now hold on just a tick and let's back it up to the first page... have I gone mad, or is that MAF sans mesh screen??

    The screen is actually there smooth and striate the airflow, as much as much as as to protect the fragile sensing element from debris, or so they told us. I'd install the screen. If you don't have one, they aren't cheap, but the screen and its retaining snap ring are still available from MB.

    The entomology of Obsidian has to be cousin to Obsession! Just a stunning car under the lights, lovely! That ////AMG provides you the symmetry. Most likely the piece that makes you vomit is that badge on a pre-merger car in 1989, in gold no less. Looks grand IMO, and the next video is the exhaust setup since it is symmetrical as well?

    hey man
    thank you so much
    Yes it could be done on any car...took quite abit of measuring and stuff...to get the right measures...and i got the hubs designed and machined in the uk...and the fit was just spot on when fitted.so im glad it worked out very well

    They were made of proper aeroplane type aluminum...cant remember the spex of it at the moment..but it was the strongest aluminium available.Would have wanted them machined in steel..but the company that made them for me..did not have the tooling for steel lathing at the time i had them made.but the aluminum was certified for the use i intended.

    cheers

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    Wow so it was proper one-off custom job. I initially thought it was a kit meant for another car that was "customized" to be used in your escort cosworth. Props to you for pulling that off! Must not have been easy.



    If I had the money, I'd love to do it on a 500 as well to pull off the dtm look of the 190e. There are obviously compomotive wheels with a similar design with a traditional 5-lug but the center lock wheels just look so good.

    thank you so much.Apreaciate your words about the escort.that car "meant" much to me as alot of work went into it..so cool to get feedback on it :9

    Yeah centerlocks are awesome.and on my other car..i have the OZ replica "compomotive" rims.i was abit involved in the "pushing" those wheels at compomotive for about 9 years ago..in the Ford scene .so im pretty happy i have a set now on my Ford Focus Rs..as i have always loved that design.

    oohhh the 190e Evos are just awesome.but they are ridicously expensive ..theyve risen in value like no other car from that era and "style"...
    i have two friends that have one each...they been built to be Evos" ..originally 2.5 16 cars...but totally rebuilt to Evo1 spec and looks..and they are just awesome..and i maybe have a first dibs on one of those cars..so maybe i end up with one in a while

    hey there people

    so here is some good ol pics .also got a new oilfilter to do the pre winter hibernation oil change











    Cheers for lookin

    You are fixing/improving things on my car that I wouldn't ever think of! It's making me feel very lazy. I almost feel guilty that I'm not showing my car the same kind of attention...

    thanx man.Well...actually i didnt consider led bulbs....as i think they are TOOOO bright..its to much at the end of the brightness scale....but i can tell ya that it reaaally helped.
    But what i think i may do..is to give the bulbs just a thin coat of clear blue ...and that will make the light even more white than it is at the moment...so im gonna try that out

    I'm wondering what the idea was behind your exhaust,since your obviously a sucker (in a good way) for originality....and to me the only thing that seems a little out of place is the twin pipes

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    hey dude

    Well..first i can tell you that i didnt put on that twin exhaust myself..and that is an answer good enough i guess

    it was on the car when it came from sweden,.
    so i just havent had the time or money,or the need to do anything about it,as i really like it,but i also dislike it..or..i can enjoy an original back box too..

    but it is on my list...as there is some info about that in my next video
    When it comes to originality...yes i am..but still my car aint original though ,so my main goal is not to keep it like bone stock or original,,when it comes to engine bay,and stuff yes then it has to be original i think.
    But some performance parts here and there,and the outside may be "not" original" but i find out stuff as i go what is needed
    thanx for looking dude

    Re: OWNER - lowman (Norge)

    hey there
    The rust repair on my car is done.I have done a video..but ill post some pictures of the process..and maybe postup the vid later

    First ,what it started with...a tiny rust spot which lead to me grinding away all the rust.


    Making the new "panel" on the right hand side..as i do not have pictures of every step.
    The welds came out better than seen here..this is in the process.and it is fully seam welded.



    Grinded the welds down..put some welding primer on.





    Coat of hammerite paint to seal it off.





    Body sealant last coat.



    How it looked inside after putting body sealant on where the fresh panel is..to seal it properly



    As i am a nerd.i have to have the body seal look factory..so i made an effort to blend it in with two layers of paint..one layer of gold..and one with body color...
    Worked out pretty good i think.


    Final coat of "black" on top of the gold..to finish it off




    Had to freshen up the fuel pump undertray
    Even found a production date stamp on it






    Put final layer of undercoat on the repair.





    And last but not least...put undercoating under the whole car...do not have a before shot of totally before..but you can see the "sand"ish" color in the spare wheel well...the whole car was like that before i treated it













    Thanx for looking

    Since you live in a corrosive environment, also check the front mounting brackets of the rear axle subframe carefully. Also in the rear inner side wheel arches around the rubber grommets. My car only had it around these luckily.
