Wa-wa-wi-wah! This car looks like all the parts actually work together for once! I actually prefer the SL63's blacked out mid part of the front bumper. I do really like that side crease though, it was sorely needed and is one of the complaints I had about this facelifted SL. I actually don't think the second pic is very flattering. I don't think this car looks..."right"...with the top down.

Not too shabby Benz. Not too shabby.

Also, that interior is really nice. Similar to the current SL65's, but nice nonetheless. I could do with less black though. Maybe some two tones or something.

Hey, HKS, could you do a photoshop of those headlights?

That part that extends at the top...if you stretch that inwards and flatten that outermost edge...it'll look very similar to the C class's headlights. Could you try that?

It's funny you mention it. I actually made that same adjustment the other day and thought it looked like the C-Class lights. I think Merc gave it a "vertical" look and it needs a more "horizontal" look as you sort of indicated:

I agree again. I love black/white combos. Simply amazing. Rough chop:

That looks so much better than the stock version. Thx! I wonder what MB was thinking when they decided to go vertical there.

I was just about to say that myself! Amazingly this car is growing on me.

I actually prefer the SL63 over the 65 because of the blacked out front bumper. Although the 65 has better wheels.
