A question about body kits.

I have seen I think 4 different kits on the R170, anyone know what came with which car as standard, or were they optional extras?

I believe the last picture you have (the yellow car) was the original standard kit.

There's a few that were standard and many that are aftermarket.


The R170 ran for many years, so some changes are subtle updates to refresh sales.
Ours is standard 2004 and looks more like the front of the red.


The 'newer, 170's tend to have the black grill and shiney star.

The following page has a couple of R170 pics that might show you the standard pre-facelift and facelift R170 models:

Pre-facelift AMG
Facelift standard

Curro,

If your right, I appear to have a facelift model with a pre facelift AMG kit, possibly fitted "aftermarket". Is there a MB website where you enter your chassis no and it tells what came as OEM, an original spec sheet or sorts?

Thx
Jet
