They were awsome (I had a set as well on my previous SLK, R.I.P.), but as mentioned the guy that did them (from Spain) has basically turned into a scammer. Don't try to do this through him unless you're ready to lose your money.

There should be lots of places that can in principle do modifications like this, if you provide a set of original fenders to start off with.

Wow you guys were indeed the veterans. Im so new to my slk350. After i got my car, i got to know about the balance shaft issues for m272 engine. I was disappointed that my engine falls within that ‘affected’ range. Now at 90,000km, it still running well. My mechanic told me to drive and not worry as the balance shaft issues may not happen to every car even if it falls within that affected range. Is that true or it will fail sooner or later?
