Exclamation New to forum SL500 Kleemann

Hello all,
I have a silver/silver 2000 SL500 sport that is essentially stock except for a Kleemann Supercharger (installed by Phil Smart Mercedes for me @ 40k miles 2 years ago) and H&R springs ( lisc. plate SL500HP ). The car now has about 52k miles and has been a joy. I have previously had 9 MB's including a '04 E500 and an '85 "grey market" 190E 2.3-16. I am particularly interested in a brake upgrade and exhaust modification to round out this SL.Any ideas would be well recieved!!

Hello and welcome to Benzworld.
It certainly is good to have a new member join us. Especially one who is also interested in performance upgrading like myself and a few others in this forum.

Its funny, I've been trying to convince others with an R129 to install a Kleemann Supercharger for quite some time now. Its good to see someone finally decided to do it.

Please share some pictures of your set up and am looking forward to reading about your experiences post Kleemann Supercharger.

Also, you might want to come join us in the R129 forum: R129 SL Class - - Mercedes Benz Discussion Forum
