Brabus kits are available from Kojak Motors here for most models. Its easy to make your car look like a Brabus, complete with Badge. Not the engine, though...

I found out because Kojak are also my dealers for the Smart and I saw them fixing a Brabus badge on a Smartie while I was there. On inquiry I found that they sell 'Brabus Kits' including the interiors...

i think the folding convertible roof u are mentioning is not good for our country's road conditions... too much dust from roads and other sources make the roof to stop operating.

..how come there is no brabus emblem on the SLK ?
somehow looks unreal ...specially because once a brabus kit is installed they usually remove merc emblems and put a brabus emblem ( B ) at the rear ..and the finish looks pretty below standard coming from BRABUS ..there are no engine mods ... because it still says slk 230, not S8** ... the design is not genuine.. wheels are fake and are looking pathetic ..
looks really lame ..

Hey,Bobby's car!I see the car parked in front of his jewellery in Calicut on most days.He comes to my dealership in it,once in a while (they brought a Terracan from us a few months ago).Although it's got the visual 'Brabus' effects,I too doubt if he's done up the engine....
