lights

Understood;but will later model AMG lights fit in earlier SLs without modification to body or wiring harness? Have seen led assemblies on ebay,which are advertised as plug and play,but none for R230 class.

I don't mean to sound like a dick but ... who cares? Nobody, and I mean that literally, will ever actually notice or care one way or the other. I'm sorry to bring this out in this particular thread but I think that all cosmetic 'upgrades', 'enhancements' or 'customizations' are silly. Whenever these questions come up, I feel like I'm in the room with my girlfriend having to answer the inevitable: Which one of these looks better?

You are beautiful the way you are!

Just traded my 2004 "red" tail lights for 2007 tail lights. It took me 2.5 hours thanks to instructions found on this forum. Really great detail and excellent pictures! The only problem I had was finding the "black box" on the driver's side. Mine is grey. The plug is upside down, but not a problem. The new lights really showoff the SL. I am very happy.

I agree with Thelos, all 2003-2009 have leds in the rear taillights, most are on the bottom and are individually linked to each other with tape wire, however there are also bulbs in there also. Yes, I did replace my 2003 tails with the 2008 AMG tails and they work fine. You just have to invert the connector, paid $ 250.00 for the set ( used). Yes, I know I stole them at that price.
