      S40 mini photo shoot - Mrs ForceFeds daily driver

      Buddy of mine that's the creator of Importmeet.com did a little feature on my car the other week. We pretty much just drove around and snap a couple pics. He is just getting into photography so is using his friends cars as guinea pigs for now until he gets better using his equipment.

      Disregard the front license plate. I initially left it on assuming the bumper would be haggard behind it, but remembered I had installed felt tape on the back of the bracket so took it off later and fortunately aside from the two small holes was in great shape

      Regardless they are the best pics I have of the car so I am happy haha. Enjoy.

      Nice photos!

      The one taken of the front (next to the yellow poles) looks incredibly mean! "Aaaargh, I'm gonna eat you aliiiiiveee!"

      Very nice.
      I especially like these two though he should have removed the sign on the second one.
      That would have take a minute on that one. I also would have removed the weeds pocking above the rail to make it super clean.

      I love the pavement on the first one. It has a nice race track feel to it!

      How are the brake lights on and not the regular tail light on that rear shot? Did you remove the light bulbs or is it just the tint?

      Thanks for sharing

      I have DRL's removed, so I was sitting in the car with the foot on the brake. It's a steep road and a lot of traffic, safety first haha.

      Bumping this thread to announce she is in process of being put back to stock with the intent of parting ways.

      Wanted to basically give a heads up that pretty much every mod on this car will be available in the next month. Will make an official for sale thread once I get every piece off and ready to sell.

      It's been 5 years and unfortunately it's time to move on, off to a new wifey mobile and endless project haha.

      I think we are just getting her a newer C300. Nothing too crazy. It postpones my E92M purchase but we all know happy wife happy life lol. I tried to push for a GLA45 AMG but she was determined not to spend too much. Good lol.

      Thanks guys. Kinda bitter sweet, but we are ready for something new.

      It's a car we mutually like aesthetically. Test drove one today, it's a nice car. Will enjoy the modern tech, the Vo didn't have iPod connection and always drove us nuts.

      Yeah that drives me nuts as well I would've had a head unit already if the install didn't require probably permanent and extensive modification

      Some lucky bastard will be getting a full Evolve body kit. If this were 5 months or so earlier I would have been all over it. Same color as my car too.

      Best of luck with the new car, you did a really nice job with this S40.

      I like the new Mercedes designs- I thought it was only the CLA that looked like that but then I recently saw that all the other models have a similar look. I'd like to have seen what you'd have done with an e92. But I'm sure one of those would become just another build- so the Mercedes at least will end up costing less maybe haha.
