Nice, thanks for sharing, there was a thread some time ago started by corkscrew, something along the lines of 'life with the slk', your second pic reminds me of that thread, maybe we should start one again and post random pics of our slk's.

Man, I'm beginning to like the de-badged look, think I might do it this weekend.

:tu:Very unique and aggressive looking SLK 55 - NICE! The front sure looks low. Great pics.
Actually, the rear is lower than the front, but I was backed over a bump on that 'camp sign' picture. if you look at profile shots, you'll see i have plenty of clearance in front, but the rears are almost tucked in.

Edward, nice personalized plates. :tu:

I hope you don't get a ticket for covering the personalized plate with the plexiglass cover (IIRC, not legal in CA). I don't think they will unless you're stopped for some other violation.

the cover is illegal (fix it ticket, no points on the driving record, AND they don't work to avoid red light cameras). it is a primary offense, in other words, one can be stopped merely for having such a cover.

wow scott! i didn't realize it's a primary offense...might have to rethink it then...though i really like the look.

I got the headlights done locally, took part of them apart myself, but the shop could have done everything, i just wanted to get my hands dirty ::lol::
