CSF Cools The Modern-Classic SL500 Mercedes

The Ultimate Replacement Radiator For The R129 V8

CSF is proud to introduce another industry exclusive to its growing line of β€œClassic Series” radiators. An All Aluminum Replacement Radiator, yet still high performance, for the Mercedes Benz R129 SL500 5.0L V8 – CSF#8057. These over-engineered German sports cars from the ’90s were technically advanced for their time, and have now entered the β€œcollectible” realm of car enthusiasts across the globe. With fitment spanning a 12-year range from 1990-2002, and some of these early model vehicles now nearing close to 30 years old, the factory radiators with plastic end-tanks need to be replaced. 

Reasons to replace or upgrade with CSF’s #8057 for Mercedes Benz SL500:

– The OEM radiator with plastic end tanks can become brittle and crack/leak over time due to normal wear-and-tear and repeated on/off heat cycles. 

– The OEM radiator core can possibly be clogged up with debris affecting the performance of the radiator. 

– The OEM radiator may be corroded from the inside due to sediments in the water or lack of scheduled coolant flushes and changes. A common occurrence for vehicles which often sit or are stored, without being driven, for long periods of times. 

– The normal life cycle for an OEM radiator is typical 5-10 years. Preventative replacement to a CSF all-aluminum radiator will ensure better performance, higher levels of reliability during driving, and be more durable as an upgraded high-performance replacement to the old or other aftermarket plastic/aluminum radiators. 

The all-aluminum replacement radiator for the R129 SL500 features CSF’s known “drop-in fitment”, requiring no additional parts or modifications for installation as well as CSF’s exclusive B-Tube Technology core; the most advanced and efficient radiator core in the industry. CSF’s #8057 will install with no modifications to the OEM fan shroud, A/C condenser, OEM hoses, and all OEM ducting. A complete plug-and-play upgraded replacement solution.
