    looks like there is no rear leg room.
    I know you probably dont care about that, but its impressive the lack of space

    More likely, the front seat is slid all the way back because *someone* doesn't know how to position the driver's seat correctly. Here, I'll post the steps:

    1. Slide the seat until your left foot rests flat on the dead pedal and the seat doesn't dig into the backs of your thighs.

    2. Adjust the steering wheel until the top edge of the wheel is perfectly in-line with the top of the dashboard.

    3. Put your first knuckles on top of the steering wheel and wrap your fingers loosely around the wheel, then tilt the seat until it supports your back comfortably.

    Chances are, this will feel like you're being squashed against the steering wheel (not really, but perception is reality, right?), but if you suck it up and deal with it, and drive the car for a week, you'll wonder how you ever felt in control of the car with the seat all the way back and the seatback in "gangsta-lean" mode.

    :ugh:

    Or maybe he's just tall... his seat is not in the gansta-lean position, and that car isn't very big. Why the fuck do you have to over-analyze every single comment made ever? Seriously.

    If people didn't fuck it up so often, there would be no point. You're not supposed to stretch out in the driver's seat; you can't control the car properly like that.

    It was quoted from an article in European Car magazine from back in the day, btw. I'm not the first person to come up with it, I just know it works.

    It could be, yeah, but Benzes aren't small cars. Americans tend to have a warped perception of how much space they actually need to be comfortable -- note the explosion of empty-nesters buying 5000sqft McMansions in the first half of the decade.

    Because I have to make up for so many people who never analyze anything. Seriously.

    ~$6000 cash shipped from NY to MD

    With the seats, that pic shows how I got the car w/o adjusting the seat.

    I have an Evo II kit, H&R suspension and AMG gen IV rims sitting in my room. Too poor for install right now

    I'm pretty sure I already explained that I don't give a shit what you people think. Responses like yours are all the proof I need that my life is better because you're far away, being an idiot in peace somewhere in the middle of a cornfield or something.

    Take good care of her man. 2.3 16vs are the watered down versions of the W201 Cosworth 16vs.

    Keep the hydropneumatic self leveling suspension in check and maintain her well and she will provide much happiness for many years to come.

    167hp vs ~185. It's watered down, but not too much. A Remus exhaust system will clear up the differences.
