I don't think it matters if it's "very early" - just that it's the pre-MY2005 facelift version that uses the older CAN bus protocol. They may sell it as for "D2B" fiber, but actually, it does not use the fiber connection, just the CAN interface. But the CAN changed along with the conversion from D2B to MOST fiber in MY2005.

yes that’s true and I just need to find right Can Bus interface for 2003 SL and seems like there is none or no one tested yet but it could fit from SLK or C classes from or even S classes from Same Era but I’m not sure if protocols will be same ? Probably not that’s why SWI-CAN2 supports other Mercedes from that era but not SL 😞 so not sure if I should waist money to find out it won’t work or it will work since it’s for Can bus output but just wasn’t tested on SL R230

The CAN bus protocols are the same across models, so there's nothing special about the SL.

I hope so that’s what I thought because why it’s supported with other mercedes but just not SL it’s funny when I tried car fittment it would take old slashes like 2000 2001 and up and C classes and others but not SL ! I was just hoping to find someone who went thru same crap and see his opinion on that well I might just get SWI-CAN2 and see worse case it won’t work and I’m not going to have volume + - from steering wheel !
