Got this brake light at the same time i bought my climatronic control.

Now does it look better or not ????????????

I think i like it. Its an original mercedes part and was abou £40, so not an expensive mod.

I would say it looks much better, I dont know if I should get one though because my slk is silver, I dont think it will look as good.

Thanks guys, i must say that after a day of having it on now, i think it looks much better - and they'd hardly slap it on the AMG55 if it didn't.

I think it will look really good on a silver car - in fact there are pic of a silver AMG on someones thread recently and the silver look excellent.

Fitting is fairly straight forward and took around half and hour, probably 20 mins of which was sussing out how best to do it. If anyone wants help, let me know.

Regards to all

A friend of mine has just taken delivery of her SLK55 a few weeks ago - the second in the UK. She has done 600 miles and doesn't like it. The dealer has offered to buy it back for 6k below.

Oh the joy of top end cars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds familiar. I checked with the local Porsche dealer, just for fun, to see what they'd give me towards a new Boxster S. Without even looking at my car they said " dealer invoice", which is about $5000 below what i'd paid. If she's truly unhappy and there's only two 55's in the country, then fsbo would cut the loss. On the other hand maybe a local dealer of another marque would love to have the competition for sale on a warm spring day, and not be so punitive in the pricing.

great quality genuine MB parts -
I just love the way the car looks with the black light -

wow... was it because of the stiffer amg suspension ? my fiancee is in the market for an slk and i advised her not to get the amg cause of the stiff suspension... any reasons why she did not like it ? thx! :)

Can they be purchased in the u s a. What method is used to debadge the letters and numbers
A hairdrier is the trick we used to use in the body shop, softens the glue that holds the badges on, then you need to use some polish or paint friendly solvent to get rid of the glue remnants.

Don't get it all too hot though, you don't want to strip the paint...

I like the looks of the dark brake light - especially on a black car. Just wondering, though. With all of the insane laws that we have in the U.S., is that legal? Something tells me that if it doesn't light up in a "bright red," like the tail lights, some onery cop will pull you over and write you up...[:(!]
