Another R230 Mercedes-Benz SL widebody kit option - MEC Design R230 Widebody Kit
German designed MEC Design released their widebody kit for the R230 SL. If you happen to own an R230, you have a bevy of body kit options to choose from. This one in particular is a good effort despite the tacky wheels and obviously the LED's which light up under the body. That kind of tacky stuff does not belong on an SL. Overall the fender work is pretty good and gives the car a much more aggressive appearance.
The rear diffuser is also well done although the exhaust tips to go with it could be more aggressive. The front is relatively simple following a design inspired by the SL65 Black Series. The hood is really the main weak point that sticks out. Overall a nice kit depending of course on the pricing which likely is not too competitive with other tuners making something like the Prior-Design widebody options much more attractive.
