Hey guys,
Today while on my way back from Lokhandwala. seen a silver Merc SL on the other side of the road. Didnt see much, just took out my cam and took a pic. The car had 5 spoke alloy wheels [each havin twin spokes]. Cudnt see much of the rear cos there were other cars in front of me.

Guess we have to wait until the roll's developed to see whether it was a 500/55.

if it had 5 spoke alloys, chances are its a regular SL.

That is the wheel which goes on the E55 and C55 AMG so most likely it is a SL55. Its just not a 3 piece wheel like the one in the pic.

Ps If ur pics do go missing again, I know this guy i can just mak a call and that photoshop will be taken care of

Well u do get just the wheels also. I've seen an S class badged S320 CDi and it had Brabus wheels. I guess Auto Hangar, Bombay is the distributor for Brabus kits.
