2013-2020 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Service Light Reset (SL-450 SL-550)

2013-2020 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Service Light Reset (SL-450 SL-550) – The Mercedes-Benz R 231 is a roadster of the German car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz. It represents the sixth generation of the SL-Class and replaces the eleven-year-old predecessor R 230. The vehicle was first presented to the world public on 15 December 2011. It celebrated its official world premiere at the North American International Auto Show in January 2012 and reached the European market on March 31, 2012.

In contrast to the previous model changes of the SL-Class, the replacement of the R 230 by the R 231 does not entail such radical changes as it did when the R 230 was released in 2001. The classic proportions of a roadster, which make up a long bonnet and a short tail, were retained even in the seventh generation. At the front is the radiator grille, which is no longer optically integrated into the bonnet, but designed separately, now upright.
