Does anyone know where to get a set of aftermarket side vents similar to the ones on the Black Series? I'm certainly not going to put Black Series badges on the car, but do find the side vents attractive and have a custom body shop who will put them on if I can find them.

Any ideas on where you can get them?

Keep in mind that the early '55s had the gills molded into the bumper, with later cars getting the inserts. Probably still possible to cut out the existing ones if needed.

Klinh... Where did you find the pics of that carbon fiber vents? That was exactly what i've been looking for since i got the car. I would love to get that put on my bumper vents.

Sorry for "thread jacking" this is the first time i've actually seen this part anywhere.

Thanks guys!

Dear Klinh,

I apologize for my late inquiry but I have only just stumbled across your posting in this thread. Normally I´m posting in the German MBSLK forum (MBSLK.de - The SLK-Community).
I hope you dont mind me asking where you have purchased these carbon fibre vents for the SLK55 AMG? Also it would be very interesting for me to learn about the prices for the vents and also for shipment (to Germany). I have been looking for them everywhere without success.


Thank you and best regards,

Sven

Black series side vents

Hi Guys

I am thinking about making a mould to produce some vents to "stick on" the wings. I have two questions,

1. Would anybody be interested in these once made? I would adopt a "Gpaddle" approach.

2. Has anyone got close up pictures to assist with the profile?

thanks

It's virtually impossible to get any Black Series specific genuine parts - unless you are a Black Series owner.
The last time i ordered an amg item it took over a month to come in direct from germany .
I think they were making it . :surprise:

If my wouldn´t been a pre FL car - it would already been mounted. Guess I have to stay "original", don´t fancy putting a jig saw into the bumper:-(

Why not get the vents fabricated

I found that a good body person can fabricate anything and some at reasonable prices - Had my 928 'fender vented' somewhat as shark gills and installed camera's in the vent to eliminate the side view mirrors.
