That's the second-best way an SL can look. Good job - I really like it.

pos- What's the best way an SL can look then?!


Your car now looks the way it was intended to look! Truly fantastic. Now matter how I try, I cannot convince myself that the US bumpers and lights look good. They just don't. Of course the euro bumpers don't offer the kind of parking lot protection that the US battering rams do-

I used to not worry before, but I now keep an eye out for the escalade driving woman, on the phone drinking a starbucks behind me...

I always wondered how many pounds my car lost with the conversion.

Watch out for minivans, too! I read somewhere that the weight difference between the US and euro versions was around 300 pounds- I bet the bumpers acount for a good bit of that.
