The side skirts definately make it more modernized looking, but it takes away from the understated elegance of the original IMO. Kinda looks like what BMW would do to a r170 if they ever got the chance.

The rims are the sLR turbine ones. They sell them at dealers, obviously for a premium, but you can probably find them for cheaper elsewhere.

looks a bit like the Lorinser body kit and with either RS8 or LM6 wheels to me, not sure about the back though.

the problem with theses wheels is :
- the real SLR ones are very expensive and a big size not suitable for R 170
- the cheap ones are not asymmetric, and look funny on the wrong side.

It's a dutch guy, the comments say he has the lorinser package (body kit) so i guess damo was right to guess.
