Mud Guards for SLK 350 Model R171

Has any body here ever installed mud guards for an SLK R171? I talked to somebody in the Parts Dept in a MB dealer and he told me installation might require lifting the car since there might not be enough room from outside to install it. I have noticed a lot of dirt on the exterior right behind the wheels on the paint and it looks to me like mud guard might be a good idea. My SLK 350, though, has sport suspension so it's a low lying car and I am a little worried about installing it myself. I can ask the Service Dept to install it, but it will cost me money and I am woried they might injure the car while installing the mud guards(hey, who takes care of your baby better than yourself?)
Any comments?

I fitted 4 Mud flaps to my 98 SLK230. (R170)
Easy job. Had to remove wheels one at a time to do it.
Right front has washer reservoir behind panel. Place a bit of ally in there to stop bottom screw from damageing bottle.
