Driving my SL500 (2004) at speed, I heard a loose panel flapping underneath. When I stopped to investigate, a small section was breaking off. I snapped off the loose piece & went on my way - all fine.
It seems likely that the panel is intended to deflect water.
The car will be due for service...
As per the title I am in need of a new front section/cat. I have an old one with melted internals to swap to cover scrap value if interested or just a normal sale

I love the design, the squatness and the width. The rear is a bit too bulky, but I suspect it may look different in the metal.
Sounds absolutely amazing.

As anyone done this? Northcoast500.com It's a bit of a dream of mine, but I doubt I'll do it as I strongly suspect my husband would now not be able to get in/out of my little car due to arthritis. I look at this website so often. So, anyone done it? Anyone done it in a very old car? Best...
Spotted one very close to me, sensible miles/price.
I've brought the vin spec list up but on this model I don't know what were options and what weren't.

Should it have Comand? Ad says so...
