Making a Mercedes C-Class look "mean"

I think there's a difference between a Mercedes and a BMW.

BMW's look mean, it's the kind of car you wana get if you have a cool personality, it shocks people, off sets them. It's why cool people drive BMW's.

A mercedes on the other hand looks Nice. It's not aggresive it's nice.

I've seen Brabus conversions and all that, but what kind of mods would you think it would take to make a Benz look mean?

First I'd put a CL grill in it, and replace the hood ornament with the plate thing (how do you do that anyway?).

I'd get it in black, but what else would you want on the car?

Change the front and rear lights, change the grill, lower it, tint all the windows, add some nice 17" or 18" rims (Black rims or mabye chrome to contrast the black paint job) and de-badge it. I don't know what all the parts are called but I have seen cars like that, and they are really nice looking.

You could always just lower it 2 inches in the front, and put big ass drag radials in the back.

Then of course, if you wanted it to look mean...you could put on one of those grill covers that looks like a mouthfull of sharp teeth like truckers do!

Or, you could sell it man up and buy a bimmer!
