Hi all gurus!

 

I have recently bought a R230 SL350, so that makes me a newbie to both Mercedes and this forum. I am currently driving a '04 model so it looks a tad dated, any advice on facelifting?

 

Regards,

Storm

I understand that the R230 has a facelift in '08? How difficult is it to facelift the '04 to that of the '08? Estimated cost?

Hey Storm, I have seen a few older R230 facelifted to 2008 in Singapore. Some claimed to have spent $20K but I believe you can do it below $10K. Other than the exterior panels and headlights, the other difference will be the steering wheel and seats. You can consider having it tuned by monster tune too.

Cheers

Eddy
