Welcome to the forum and congratulations! That looks like a sweet ride!
For the side markers, check out slkstore.com They have clear side markers. As for the halo headlights, I have no experience, but several members have them installed. They should chime in soon I guess.

I'm considering the same for my silver 01 SLK. I'm leaning toward clear. While you're at it, check out the 3 fin grilles (I found a sharp one on ebay).

i ended up going with clear side markers and headlights. they look very clean and sharp. i replaced the amber singles with the chrome bulbs and it made a world of a different. i been looking at the grills but unsure what to do yet.

I recently put the Halo headlights in my SLK. I was debating on the clear or smoke, went with the clear because the car is white. I have looked at others, and if the car is dark, smoke looks good. Your car would look good with either, but I think clear might be better. Same with side markers - SLK Store my source for them. Halos came from a site I found on E-Bay. About $220. a pair. Look great, installation fairly easy. The electrical hook-up for the LED lights needed a little splicing.
