      Most of the Conti's that i see are compromised are sidewall blowouts (generally from hitting something hard), in this instance its going to need to be towed or put a spare tire on it.

      Maybe something to discuss with your wife, if you get a sidewall blowout call MB/AAA for a flatbed.

      Yeah my though process was to avoid the whole tow thing. Normally road side would come by and put on your spare and you'd be on your way. When we had this blow out I was actually driving and I was curious to see how it all goes down. Surprisingly it drove very well. Like it had the correct tire pressure the whole time. I drove about 6 miles back home and it held together real well, tire was sitting lightly deflated from normal.

      Oh man, I try reading over there but usually give up a few pages in... Endless posts about lights, rimz, and that's about it. So few with actual performance mod plans in mind.

      Beautiful options & color selection BTW! Thanks for sharing pics!

      Agreed, my w211 is 'jade metallic' and looks very similar. I love it.

      Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden

      Emerald Green is new for the C-class this year but I think it's been an available color on other models.

      I ordered the car without seeing a color swatch first, I honestly wish it were a bit more green but I'm still happy with the choice.

      They also love to argue about air filters.
