I don't think you can get the oem in carbon fiber but you can get the aftermarket one in carbon fiber.

Try your local dealership or maybe there's a part number floating around this forum by using search. I don't think any company in existence makes these in CF. I'm sure there are companies that will wrap them in CF if you send them the item but it's expensive. I think your best bet would be to find this MB part and then have it wrapped in CF vinyl. Do you have any other CF/look parts on your SLK?
