In case no one knows, and it may well be top secret, I can reveal that Motec69 has been appointed as Australia's new ambassador on the Pacific Island of "Castel Felice".

Hi Geoff, I am not so sure about the side skirts - if they could be done tastefully, yep all go, but some of the '80s offerings that I have seen in illustrations on some other cars can look quite garish. Just my op. Regards Styria - I think the boot spoiler looks okay (must be body colour) and of course the front...looks pretty smashing. Maybe I am biassed. Styria (again)

What actually looks better in my opinion are 126 (?AMG) side skirts as seen recently on a 6.9 sold in the US.

Sorry Styria - I actually like my "Black German Sausage" as the car presents now but if I end up with a full kit I would definitely paint it and remove that towbar that AMG69 went to a lot of trouble to fit.



It of course still has your repro AMG front spoiler as well and I think the sides and particularly the rear look a little bare.

Dear Bill

I thought that the W126 AMG side skirts were the same as the ones for the W116?

The W126 has a longer wheelbase than the W116.
