Thanks to their magnificent body kits for luxury cars, Japanese tuner WALD International is now a world famous firm. Their cars can rival works of giant tuners like Hamann or Lumma, mainly because they ‘re sporty and elegant, a trick that most of the Germans never been able to pull off properly! Wald’s latest kit for the W221 Mercedes S-Class though, is a bit overdone.
It gets the same fancy package with flared arches, big spoilers, massive skirts and big wheels. But this one has too much garnish. It wears too much mascara. Those side vents really don’t work with the S-Class style, and what’s up with that ghastly rear diffuser?! Also, those exhaust seem to be copied from Lexus ISF, but why?
Wald is fine tuner, but this time they get 5 out of 10.
