SL320 3yr anniversary
Hi, I'm new to Benz World but had my 2000 SL320 Edition for nearly 3 yrs now...dont usually keep a car that long but hey...what a car.
Just about to make some mods for the first time....
1. Expect delivery of a blaupunkt compact active subwoofer tomorrow...just thought that the system needs a wee bit more oomph and i can turn down the bass on the door speakers so they dont rattle when im playing it LOUD,, Planning on installing in it the passenger footwell under the carpet and plastic panel..might post the results..
2. seen some adverts from tuners in UK claiming to increase bhp from 224 up to 338, not sure how its done, maybe a chip or a remap...waiting for reply to my email enquiry. Hoping it is just a small mod making the fuel system/ emissions more efficient. Anything I can find here on that mod will be useful
3. really like the idea of conversion to lpg dual fuel, especially as my car is registered in 2000 so I miss out on the road tax hike. Do my bit for the environment and save a load of fuel costs, yeah I know its pile of money upfront but its will be a good saving long term or should help with resale IF I sell..
4. I have 17" 5 spoke AMG wheels on at the moment and feel they look a wee bit wimpy for this car. Would like to pick up a set of 18" or 19" although perhaps the gearing change and harsh ride of 19" might be a bit too much for my 320.
Anyway, thats my plans so far, with only 44,000 miles showing I have many years satisying SL motoring ahead of me.
Hope to join in some of the forums and get to know some other Merc Petrolheads over the coming months and years...great forum very informative.
