Re: MB rear windows

Phil, sorry to mention this, but, if stealth is everything, why do you keep
getting stopped by the Police?

Buy a bright red MB, then they wont know its you! (shamless plug for my car
mode off).

My MB DOES have rear window quattro lettering. Could this be because it is a
very early MB and they had windows left from the WR?
