GLS Body Kits?

Is anyone aware of body kits for the GLS? I've seen GLS63 kits online but what about the 550?

This is my understanding. If your looking to convert a GLS450 to 550 or 63, as you said there are 63 aftermarket kits but you need to order the 63 kit from Asia via Alibaba.com or Ebay.

A 550 conversion kit does not exist however, you can purchase a used 550 bumper on EBay, there are many. The front bumper for the 450, 550 and 63 from a fit standpoint are all the same. The rear bumper for the 450 and 550 are also the same, the 63 is different.

For a 450 to 550 conversion you would need to buy fender flares, upgrade your wheels as well as find a front bumper on Ebay.

For a 450 to 63, buy the kit or find front and rear bumpers on Ebay, buy fender flares and upgrade your wheels.

Thanks!

I believe the rear bumper on the GLS550 is a bit different than the 450. The 450 has the black molding running along the bottom. Also I'm not sure the fender flares will work with the standard 450 rear bumper.

Indeed rear bumper is slightly different, and the biggest difference is that you need fender flares if you want to use the 550 rear bumper, or it will be hideous.

Not sure if there are some aftermarkets for that. If not, hit your dealer.
