I'm watching Tuning elite and I saw this. What do you think about it?

I think it's horrible, like other Harmann products, but I LOVE the new grill which makes it look like an SLR

More pics would be nice. Offhand, I don't like the rims, looks like there's a mini-me spoiler on the back (boooooo), and those side strakes look like a rip off from the M3. But I do agree with you, the front fascia is gorgeous.

Overall = meh....
 
does anyone else notice that the front grill doesn't match the bonet of the car at all... if they made it match, it would look alot better... its only so-so for me
 
I think it's rubbish, grossy overstated, imo. I guess that's what Opera does tho, dunno.
 
Lorinser does that same thing, but a lot better, more classy and elegant :thumbsup:

I have to disagree!
The attempt of a SLR-look front on the SLR of Lorinser and Opera are pretty much even. Both of them only use a different grille to make the car SLRish:
(although it looks like the Lorinser might also have a slightly different bonnet)

IMHO Lotec does the best "nosejob" on the SL: :p

They don't just change the grill but change the entire hood, install a new radiator, etc. This of course makes the conversion much more expensive, it costs 9800? or ~ 12.500$.

that one looks nice too, but way too expensive, Lorinser grille would be my purchase :)

Why would you even buy one? It's such an expensive car to spoil with bad tuning.
SLR wannabes? :thumbsdown:
 
it's not bad tuning, it looks good, I'd do some engine work on it too.. with a new pulley and some mods you can get 600-650hp out of the SL55
