I put one in my SLK32, it fit ok, but it was so heavy, it made the bumper drag on the ground. Not wanting to damage my freshly repainted bumper, I attached an aluminum skid plate to the bottom of my bumper. But the skid plate made too many sparks as it dragged along the ground. The shower of sparks was much too distracting while driving, so I took out the V-12 and put my stock 32 AMG V-6 back in. I took off the skid plate, and you can't even tell I ever had the V-12 in the engine bay.
