SLK R171 Body Kits

Hi I'm new to Benzworld so I'm not exactly sure how to work all the mechanics of these threads...anways (I'll figure it out pretty soon).

I'm currently drivin' an '02 C230 Kompressor SC and I'm lookin' to get an '05/'06 SLK 350. Are there any body kits out there worth it to be considered as optional to the Factory MB AMG package? Or is the AMG kit worth its bucks?

Also, any input on:
SLK 350 w/ AMG kit VS. SLK 55 AMG??

Remember that while the AMG OEM is expensive at $4000 you do get a lot more than just the body kit. You also get AMG wheels, sports suspension, and shifter buttons. Sports suspension cost $400 and you would spend over $1000 for wheels plus the AMG package is the only way to get the shifter buttons.

The main exterior differences between the 350 AMG and 55 are: functional cooling vents on sides of front bumper (don't look right to me), 18" 16 spoke wheels, black front (2) grill fins, smoked taillight covers, airo wings on the cowl and AMG 55 badge on trunk. Other than those, unless I missed something, they look the same.
