    Thanks it's just that they are the same on both sides of the car , sounds obvious but they spin in different directions !!

    There ok but the fact they spin different directions each side messes with my OCD

    Don't all wheels with a similar design spin like that? I don't think any wheels are side specific. Personally I don't like them either so maybe find a set of 18" Avior wheels if you want to keep to MB options for your SL

    Alphard is an extremely rare wheel.

    Last set I saw was on a Golf!!!!

    Some manufacturers do manufacture them so they are directional specific to the side of the vehicle

    Plenty of Avior wheels on ebay, a set of 4 was recently unsold at £350 BIN. Looked in excellent condition too.
