Cant decide if it looks nice or looks as though its had body part transplants. Would need an HPI check to see if its been in a smash ?

Lol! Makes it look like "I didn't have any other color in stock, honey" :-) To me it just spoils the impression the SLK usually makes :-(

Two tone paint jobs often look good on pre-war classics.....but not on the SLK. That's one giant step for tuner-kind!

I dont like it but.....
I think the paint should be the other way round, black center with silver sides.
That way the center of the car, the grille & interior are all black.
