Just a few comments:
1. I agree - The Trunk Monkey ads are Hall of Fame Material - Too bad my daughter was already grown before I saw them.
2. To the OP's concerns:
- We have three generations of SLK's, the R170, 171, & 172.
- We have both base and facelift model years in the R170 & R171 generations.
- We have different engines in each generation, which if you count the AMG's & diesels can be as many as 7 power plants.
- We have US & ROW cars that are configured differently in many areas.
Thus where you live and what type of SLK you drive (year and powerplant) really is required before you get a good answer to just about any question. I know it looks insanely repetitive sometimes, but it is the way those who have founded this forum have chosen to deal with people who are new. I also believe that it is a kind hearted attempt to help those new to the forum start to research and find things for themselves, as another value of the founders is to patently refuse to flame people for asking simple questions (or for any other reason for that matter), even if there are hundreds of threads on the exact same question. It's one of the things I love about SLKWorld, and one of the main reasons I agreed to serve as a moderator.
And in that spirit you are exactly right - with the number of new members we are getting lately - it does seem sometimes like the only ones who post on here are Mods, and we all seem to say the same thing - update your profile, learn how to search, vote for the ROTM, etc.
Hopefully you'll get more acquainted with the site and learn some really great things about your wonderful '55 - I really wish I had a rocket like yours. Enjoy your summer, and find a curvy road somewhere in your beautiful country this week and drive until your face hurts from smiling so much from the joy that driving an SLK can bring you.
Best wishes, my friend
