Not really, but any good audio shop can do it, need to split some wire harnesses I think.

although I like the look of your car, I can't stand the SL55 for a multitude of reasons that I'll never be able to explain with text.

I have, however, looked at them recently because I am in the auto industry and was pricing a vehicle and came across this gem: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Merce...item2577306625

I was not aware they came with an SL65 appearance pack plus other goodies amounting to a 147k sticker. That's MB for ya!

White with red interior was my second choice. I really want that red interior ...with red stitching too!

Great taste man, incredible. Don't worry I'm posing too bc my porsche calipers say brembo.

oh and btw this was the inspiration for my wheel decision on my other e46 except it was that picture up in the mountains of you parked on the side of the road

Any SL in Mars Red is always going to be my favorite. It has a lot of eyeball IRL. I happen to really like yours because of the color and wheel choice (plus all your other little add-ons).

Unfortunately, where I live, the SL Benz is the Ferrari for the guy that knows nothing about cars. 9 times out of 10, their other car is a Lexus LS. Between that and the fact that I've been in a terrible accident in an SL, I stay waaaayyyy away from them. Please keep us updated though, great to look at and your taste is on par as always!

Supercharger is out...







Got my new CF shift knob with custom leather with red stitching boot, but the base of the boot is wrong!
Now need to find a good upholstery shop to swap the boots.

The car is coming along nice, do you drive with that height or raise it up with the air suspension?

I'm debating whether or not to get a cf lip, but afraid it'll only last a few weeks considering how low the car is already and it being my dd

Good thing the knob boot swap is not too bad, only $65 at a local upholstery shop.

Slammed if I drive the car in the area I'm familiar with.
And all my previous cars were slammed also.

To install the larger throttle body.

What kind of power do you think you'll be making all said and done?

I feel like your car would be on a whole new level if you painted all emblems mars red to match. At first I thought de-badge, but now I am thinking red because I was looking at that pic you just posted.

If you just painted that front grille emblem red to match, your car would automatically stand out that much more as a modified car
