M156 Swap

Just kidding! I was thinking about doing the LS6 swap into the Lexus when I came back from deployment, but I didn't want to have the car down for so long. Instead I decided to keep the Lexus the way it is and use it as a daily driver, especially when it snows (snow tires rock!) and just buy a C63...

Here she is! 2010 C63 AMG with 6,000 miles. I took off all the badges and left just the tripoint stars. I don't plan on doing anything to it yet. It's a beast. I'll just get some window tint, wire up the Valentine, and then add some laser interceptors.

At the dealer



Finally back home



next to the Lexus, which definitely needs some TLC after 8 months of neglect

Congrats man. Love me some C63. Now get it out from under that pine tree

Some say he roams around the woods at night foraging for wolves.

Haha yeah, the cars were there for about 45 minutes while I had some stuff delivered on a truck that needed the garage. I have a 2 car garage I can park in

I am a big fan of the look of the newer Benzes. I know they sound mean as hell. Good buy on that one. A Benz always, always looks good in black.
