Default SLK Dash Kits

The SLK Store now has R170 and R171 dash kits. These are available in carbon fiber, wood, and brushed aluminum. Right hand drive is also available. Custom configurations are also available if you want to cover those plugs in the dash.

Here is a link:

Do you know of anyone who's bought one of these kits. I'd like some customer reviews as far as the actual quality, form, fit, function etc before I took the plunge... Pricing looks reasonable though.

Is there a picture of the brushed aluminum for the 171? It's not on the website.

I just added them to the store, so I haven't built up a history. The manufacturer claims to have sold hundreds with positive feedback. If you are not satisfied you can return for a refund.

No pictures of the brushed aluminum, it's not one that is often ordered for the R171. If you are interested I can get you a sample.

In regards to the carbon fiber dash trim kit, can you tell us how many pieces there are and which parts they cover?

These will fit the SLK Facelift model. You can use any of the pieces that you would like, but it is sold as a kit with all pieces shown based on the options you car would have.

These are real Carbon Fiber dash kits. They are a very thin veneer (.080") that is applied over your existing dash. The other types of dash kits are actually replacing your existing ones. It is very strong and 3M is used, so there have not to date been any issues with it lasting or sticking. You can apply a metal plaque on this if you would like to. You would need to note if you have a RHD vehicle as there is an additional charge for RHD.

These carbon fiber dash kits are made at the time of order and you should allow 7-10 days for the process and the shipping depends on the method selected ie: overnight, second day, ground, etc.

Thanks and let us know if you have any other questions.

I did not see the wood kit on the SLKstore site. I would be interested in a R171 kit.

The kits do not contain the door handle or armrest, only the pieces in the diagram above. Our supplier discontinued the wood kits. We do have aluminum dash kits for the Mercedes-Benz SLK R171 models. Here is a quick link:

We've only sold a couple of the aluminum dash kits and don't have a picture of an installed kit on an SLK. We can send sample aluminum for those who would like to see the actual material. Just email info@slkstore.com.

I want to get the carbon fiber dash kit on my 06 SLK55. It has the AMG Performance Package, which means that it has some carbon fiber trim on it already. Does this carbon fiber dash kit match the trim that I already have on my car? Or will it look noticeably different? Thanks.

We can have a sample material sent to you and you can compare them and decide if you think it is close enough. We think this can be subjective and would feel better if you were able to see a sample carbon fiber for the dash kit match. If you email us at info@slkstore.com with your address we can send you a sample.
