Despite the fact that a new SL is on the horizon to replace the relatively old SL, Piecha Design has come out with a new kit to give the 2008 and newer SL-Class another facelift.
Piecha’s kit includes new housings for LED daytime running lights and fog lamps. This housings fits all SL bumpers, including the AMG-specific bumpers of the SL63 and SL65. A three-part front spoiler lip is also offered with the kit, which allows owners to mix and match their car’s look according to their whims. No styling kit is complete without a unique set of wheels, and Piecha’s offering is its set of MP1 wheels that are done in a titanium finish. Offered in 9.5 fronts and 11-inch rears in a 20-inch diameter, these wheels make a complementary match for 25 and 30 aspect ratio tires. To make the best of the new look, lowering springs or an electronic lowering module decrease ride height by 30 mm.
While other tuners see the need to fiddle the Mercedes’ electronics to increase performance, the only thing Piecha did was to reprogram the electronics controlling the roof so that it can be operated up to 60 km/h.
