The Most Understated Benz in the World

Do you think people would notice ?

I find it subtle and amusing at the same time.

I find it crazy that people would want to draw attention to themselves or their cars. So, I think I will have to do this to the focus.

I am tired of people pointing and nearly driving into the ditch. A car like this will stop all of those shennanigans.



So, what do you think?

Everyone should have their car completely chromed.

Secretly, I think that it is really kind of cool.

chrome benz

That is hideous, but I could imagine people actually doing that in my hometown of Scottsdale (snottsdale?).

Draw stares? Once the sun reflects off that people will go blind. That car won't even show up in that guy taking a picture. But I'd take one.

Only in Dubai do you see things that outlandish.

I think you should dip the whole car in gold, engine and all

lol wow......hey I actually saw a completely chromed-out Eclipse a few years back.......

see the problem with having a nice car is that you always have fingerprints on it from stupid people...... now think of what a mirror would be like with a fingerprint and put it on this car
