Finally have my slk55 back

The surgery is done... my car is back!!!

Eurocharge headers, new exhaust... new paint doors to bumper, Piecha LEDS and fogs, Clear bra entire front end , tune and CATs scrubbed. I will post a video with sound as soon as I figure out how to do so... Pics and Dyno attached... dyno says I increased Hp to the wheels by 55 hp...

I want to thank all the members who have helped me with info and advice... Especially Jeff!!!

I literally got the last pair in the warehouse... talked to the big man myself. Ive been sitting on them for 9 months... Didnt know if I was going to do the whole Piecha front bumper or just the drls... Wife, son and friends made my decision for me . DRLs it is!!!
