I would agree on your observations from a functional standpoint, no politics or personalities involved. I would say that in my experience with various factions in our government that I found the State Department often played loose and fast with little regard for the "rules", if there were any.

The key issue is that the various organs of Justice are dragging their feet and stonewalling actually prosecuting these clear violations of the law, in whatever degree. It is seeming too that these willful violations could have (quite possibly did) led to the death of the Ambassador to Libya

Her actions, by direct and indirect admission, violate secret and above security clearance regulations. She seems to fail to believe she will be held accountable at this time. That belief does not relieve her of being held responsible, it only momentarily delays her ultimate punishment, what ever

Are those the SEL-type wheels? I have a set of those too that came with one of the SDs, one pair has a good set of snow tars mounted. Note they require longer bolts than do the bundts. Polished and shiny look kinda pimp if that is the look you are going for. Yo G! --R On 8/31/15 12:31

Yes.. the wheels are from an 87/88 SEL era Mercedes. I'm not in love with the polished "bling bling" look, but I did want to migrate to 15 inch tires. Selection of 14" tires is getting near impossible to get, but I want to preserve the "Mercedes look" . I'm actually thinking of bead blasting the

15" wheels make all the difference in the world as far as ride and handling. My LWB W123 had 15" wheels, and it drove very differently than a W123 with 14" wheels. Too bad you don't have a set of 15" bundts. Those things are darned near unobtanium these days. Dan Sent from my iPad > On Aug

Yes, 15" Bundt wheels would be "restoration correct look" for the Coupe. However, after 3 months of search.. have not turned up even one, much less a set of 5 [need a matching spare, you know]. So they are as declared " Unobtanium" .. unless I wish to buy new, at quoted price of $389.00 each,

So? they can always be painted as original, or painted with paint that is "close enough" to original, depending on Grant's taste and cash roll. I choose the "close enough" route, none of my cars are for show. It sounds like Grant's job may warrant use of OE paint. The polished ones look

GMann Sez: Of all the Mercedes wheels, I find the 15 slot design most pleasing. I like the steel wheels (or better yet, the light alloy wheels like my 240D came with) and the hubcaps. It can be a pain to find a replacement hubcap or repaint the centers, but they are very attractive on 123
