Thumbs up SLK230 Radio Upgrade Continental TR7412UB-OR

Here is a quite simple way to upgrade the original MB Becker Radio head unit on a SLK230<br>I bought the TR7412UB-OR on E-bay from "Schlauer-Shop24 e.K." total cost, $160.00, took 15 days <br>(to US) with DHL basic shipping (There are other Continental's to choose from, CD Player etc. see website) <br>Despite the speaker impedance output difference (comes with 4 ohm speaker output, MB Bose System <br>runs on 2 ohm) it sounds pretty decent, clear voice with lots of base and without any loud beeps! <br>Preset buttons are easy to handle while driving. The USB Mp3 player is great upgrade to the original <br>6 Disc CD Changer. The AUX plugin takes and plays just about anything you plug in. (see Continental stats) <br>I did had to make a small enlarging cut on the dash center column face plate to Flush Mount the unit. <br>(Suggest to take your time to install, for best results) <br>Good Luck!<br><br><br>

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

First please update your location and vehicle (Put Looking!)(year?: 1996-2017, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

Join the gang! Your 1st thread should be your introduction so we can welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members 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.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
