Sorry, this is more about me finding out what it was than anything, I only have one shitty pic from my cell phone, not even sure if it's worth putting up.

It was a debadged gunmetal silver SL, exhaust stacked high low like the IS-F and some crazy body kit that had vents in the front quarter panels and rear bumper. I couldn't tell what the rims were because we were rolling on Crowchild and then downtown but never stopped at the lights.

Anyone know this car and what kit was on it? Have any pictures?

Was it a wide body kit? If so, i have seen the same car on Deerfoot SB right by Mackenzie town. Looked like a kitted SL500 to me :dunno:

I think it was a wide body kit, yeah. I didn't notice BC plates, so probably not.

I have only seen it once then, and he was cruising the opposite way that i was going. I thought it almost looked a bit like beige, but chances are it was the same car. At first glane i thought it sort of looked like a black series just because how wide the fenders were, but after it drove by it more looked like a sl500, or perhaps an sl55 amg.

Yeah, I couldn't quite put my finger on the colour, but I'm sure it isn't factory, I doubt it was an AMG because of the kit put on it, it did have huge brakes though.

It was at Earls on 4th a few times in the last week... Originally thought it was a Black as well... but appears to be some somewhat cheesy WB kit.

I just looked at it, taken with Blackberry pearl, quality is shit, you can't tell it isn't stock from the photo other than the different rims. The picture really sucks.

This sounds like a car I saw parked at school (University of Victoria). I got a couple pics, this was about 8 months ago. It had AB plates at that time. I don't think it was an AMG, there was nothing AMG about the interior IIRC. Had pretty sick rims, except the fact they were chrome...the rears had a dish wide enough to drive a truck on. Here are some shitty cell phone quality pics... was this it?

Yeah, that's the car.

Wheel gap FTL is right.

Having said that, as a student, I would still be pumped to be driving this car, regardless of the wheel gap or chrome rims.

Yup, thats the one alright. It is more of a beige then a silver, no?

Lives near me in Marda Loop. See the car parked on the street in front of his house every day.

Not a big fan of it, personally.

Wouldn't surprise me someone driving this at uvic since half the member's kids at Glencoe go to that university.

It has a ZR auto plate frame... That explains a lot.

I saw a black one on 14th Street a day ago like this. Not as the rear looked more stock but the fenders were flared and the front had vents on the side. Definitely aggressive looking. Anyone else spot it and get a pic?

Looks like a beige beluga with chrome teeth.

I think this is the SL600 w/ Renntech, and Lorinser stuff. The car is usually driven by the owner's little kid.
