R170 r171 r172?

Hello everyone. I’m new here and trying to understand some terminology that I haven’t seen before. What is the difference between R170, R171 and R172? And how do I know which one applies to my car?
Thank you,
Al

R171 no question. Second iteration of the SLK's(2005-2011). Didn't start making 55's until 2005.
Ask Jeff for your datacard.

No problem. Body style changes being the most significant visually. Post your Vin and get your datacard to see how your car was spect.
