Sometimes, once you start buying original equipment Mercedes wheels, you just can't stop. These wheels escaped the ridiculous chrome plating craze of the 80s which is second in stupidity only to the ridiculous gold plating craze of the 80s. In its absolute zenith of class, the wheels would be chromed and the Mercedes center emblem would be gold plated. Mercedes dealers would gold plate the emblems and add a 'Gold Package' line item to the window sticker.

There is no greater put down than to call somebody 'Gold Package.'
