thotdoc,


Welcome to the World’s Premier Mercedes-Benz SLK Community from Valrico, Florida!


Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.






If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response. Be patient and a knowledgeable member will address your question.

If you wish to become PM (Private Message)- capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.

New members and guests should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under quick links when you leave.

Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK World Forum

Thank you,
Jeff

More Pictures of my 2012 SLK55 AMG

The doorsill has a lighted AMG logo, also notice the red ambient lighting on each door and on both sides of the centre console. The centre display has an AMG function for recording lap times, as well as monitoring oil and water temperature.

My 2013 SLK55 AMG in Mars Red should be here around June timeframe. The delay is because, as most of you know, the R172 line was shut while they re-tool for MY 2013. So my dealer had a "spec" 2012 slot for the past couple of months that converted over to MY 2013 and he gave me the place in line! Woo hoo!

Now the waiting game...

Congratulations! New SLK 55 and it's a 2013? Will be interesting to know the total production figures for the 2012 SLK 55.

I dealt with MB Durham. I ordered the car last November and it was a 4.5 month wait.

What I've Learned So Far From My 2012 SLK55 AMG

When in Comfort mode, the car starts (pulls away) in 2nd gear.
Gas mileage is far better than my 2008 M3 Cabrio.
More to come....
