The bi-turbo engines have the most power with a tune by a mile. Look for a 600/65 if you want to see massive gains on a tune only.

Different ride different vibe. Don't think it would look good. Do it in photoshop before wasting the time and money.

Yes but don't waste your time on a NA engine. If you want quicker with a tune, get a bi-turbo.

You have a short in your alarm siren. Very common to all 230 SL's. Congrats on your purchase. Not sure I would ever recommend an R230 as a first MB and first German car.

On my SL600, the power difference between a cold day and a hot day is huge! My car has the boost turned up but I'm also running Speedriven intercoolers and a huge trunk tank.

SL600 floaty, that's funny. It rides pretty hard actually but the comfort setting does make it softer. Sport is really hard. Mine is a 2005.

X166's are getting cheap. I like my 164 450 but my 166 GL63 is a whole other level. The 2013 & 14 450's are a good buy since they have the bi-turbo V8's and they can be tuned for GL63 type power.

Maybe for a 350. GL450 should be trouble free for another 100k+ miles with the exception of struts but those can be purchased cheaply with a lifetime warranty.

No way I would go the cheapest route with a car that is so expensive. There are plenty of legitimate tuners in the US who will back up their product.
