The OP needs no suggestions on modifying.....

This car stands out exactly as it's supposed to be, CLASSY and SHARP!

Agree with others...that would be really tacky & ricey.
Some people also suggested me to put the single-slat grille on the front like the newer 09-up SL, that actually won't look good on my car.

I've really come to appreciate the SL over the last few years. Great looking car you have. I'd love to pick a current model up in a few years.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

No issues with emission, secondary cats are enough to pass it.
