Stock wheels would suit this car much better. The chrome just doesn't go with the SL's color.

You have to keep those wheels! They look great! Congratulations on the car.

Congrats.

Although the color wouldn't be my personal choice, it is indeed unique and will make your car stand out from other R230's. I say switch back to the stock wheels, only the silver (not grey) painted ones. Either that or some other high quality wheel which is not chrome. Chrome is too tacky on these cars, IMHO.

The stock wheels have the silver or polished lip so to speak and the gunmetal grey center. I may have these powder coated black if I keep them. I am not sure what to do yet. I guess I need to sell one set but have not decided yet. Do you guys think the renntech front lip would look good or bad on this car? I dont mind the color at all because my hummer is that color and my old cts v was the same color, kind of have a theme going in my drive way.

I dont think the Renntech front lip fits the SL 65 bumper. I dont think. Only carlsson front lip is available for the 55/600 and the 65.

Great car, but i'd put the stock 19s back on. The stock 65 has the perfect combination of subtlety and aggressiveness, if that makes any sense at all.

You don't need 200K. They are depreciating like bricks. There are lots of low mile '05's for 125-135. That makes the 65 a great performance bargain.

Looks great...almost all SL65's are either silver or black. I say keep the rims for a while and see how you feel.
