    The guys at Age say this wheel
    Mercedes SL55 R230 CLS55 CLK55 W209 AMG Steering Wheel | eBay UK
    will fit the 2004 SL55 but on the listing it says 2006 on and it has paddles.

    Part number is A209 460 19 03 9E37

    Im reluctant to buy without knowing and the Age guys just say it will be ok - can anyone cast a knowledgable glance please :dk::confused:

    Dave,

    My previous CLK55 was a 2004 with the shift buttons as you have on your SL55... I fitted exactly the same wheel with paddles to that (from Rashmans 2007 CLK63) and it fitted fine with no issues... 10 minutes and it was fitted.
    You may want to get a 2nd opinion on that as to me it looks exactly like the one i fitted, all the internals look the same and no configuration work with Star needed doing as you already have shift buttons....

    Cheers Greg

    Thanks Greg - mb lpool parts say no but I guess they would, but surely the other thread here with the chap swapping switches applies ?

    Dave,

    Did you end up buying the wheel you mention from AGE styling. I am thinking about buying one to replace my old wheel on my CLK55 AMG w209 10/2003. Your wheel and my wheel are exactly the same, hence the interest...

    If you have a 2003 CLK55 it has buttons not the "paddles". I believe these are wired differently and therefore it isn’t a straight switch.

    After the facelift (2004) it would probably be ok.

    However, I have seen somewhere that someone was able to swap the innards of the buttons to the paddles which may be an option!
    ;)
