Hi all

Sorry for the late introduction! I know it's a lame excuse but I didn't bother because I didn't have any decent pics lol.

Anyway my name is Daniel, manager of So Asian DVD for the moment... I know a few of you from Clubitr, and circuit club, and shonen who I met at work. I guess you'll recognise this as jfox's old car from about 2 months ago since when I acquired it... I'm really happy with it and threw a few mods of my own on there to complete it.

IT IS a great little car with character and today I took off the top and went for a drive through a bit of the country... here's the pics:

Hey N

Any vinyl sticker maker should be able to get one done for you. I got mine done at Signwave, brought the car in, the got some black gloss vinyl, covered up the parts and cut it out, took 20 minutes and 40 bucks.

If he even tried doing it 2 his new CLK500 i would have 2 do somen 2 stop him :P

http://memimage.cardomain.net/member_images/11/web/203000-203999/203162_33_full.jpg

Ppl always ask me how it feels or goes in the CLK500.. (i dont really know coz i never drove it only been passanger) but it fast car!! it goes like a rocket in the straight line considering its weight!! it nearly as fast as Dads MX-5 in straight line... (well not really, it much slower) but still it fast :P
