W201 V12 The New Look !!!!
The W201 V12 is about 98% done. I have to do some small bit’s. Like logo’s and enginebay paneling. Wiring and some interior bit’s. I did also the first testdrive with the my family after the re-assembling. It drive’s very good. And with some weight in the rear seat the car has alot of grip!!
The W201 V12 The New Look is painted in the 199 blue/black color with the faceliftpaneling in 7700 altro grey. Im very happy with the result and this color combination. It looks just fantastic i think. Also the wheels looking much better under the car i think.
I will change 1 thing in the look. There rear suspension needs to go a little bit up. I order stiffer springs because my shock absorbers are maxed out. This will need to be mounted after i got the parts in house. I will raise the car about 5 to 10mm because of the wheels are wide and match the outside of the wheelarch. When going to a pothole are bad road surface the wheel can hit the new painted fender. I just don’t want that.
The next few weeks i will make the car 100% ready and will do so driving video’s with the car. I also have to do some fine tuning adjustments to the gearbox controls. when going of throttle the gearbox is shifting up to hard . also the first 30% throttle positions can be softer making the car. even more nice to drive at low speeds and throttle positions
