It's in good condition, I take care of my parts like their good looking girlfriends

But really, it fits like a glove... there's 2 holes on each side to mount to the bumper in the fender well.

There's the normal rock chips driving in chicago, mostly only visible on the center black part; but even then you can take a few steps away and you can't even see them.

The paint matches perfectly, so it's literally ready to be installed on any MSM and it will look perfect.

I'd say $175, unless people freak at that price, but I doubt it

Welcome! But for you're safety and piece of mind... get some snow tires before it starts snowing. any is300 owner will tell you that you might as well have skiis under your tires if you dont get a set of winter tires. also, you might want to save up a little bit longer and get something with height adjustability as being lowered during the winter in chicago is asking for problems

Thanks for the advice guys. I do have a set of Blizzaks I have been using for 3 yrs now. One of them got destroyed late last winter, good ol potholes, so I need to replace it soon. Im looking at the LM-60's as the LM-25's in 215/45 seem to have been discontinued. I think im going to end up sticking with stock ride height, and just replacing the shocks, as I dont want any issues. I would love a small drop, but I vowed I wouldnt on this one. My previous vehicles were all lowered. Any recommendations for either KYB's, or Bilsteins? The KYB's seem to be less $$, but I dont mind paying a bit more for quality if they are worth it. I just want my stock ride back. BTW, if anyone has any car audio related questions for this vehicle, or any other, feel free to ask. That is my specialty

I was actually more interested in the tails, but I'll pass. I won't do any big body mods cuz I love the sleeper look. Thanks. I'll try to hit you up this weekend if I have time.
