Cool Hello from San Francisco!

Hey all! Just found this community and I'm very happy to read and learn from you all!
Got my beautiful 2006 silver SLK55 last month and I must say, I am driving twice as much as I expected. I'm still at the phase of asking everyone if they want a ride
Waiting for my SmartTop and windshield to arrive this week. Also looking into possibly replacing the headunit I have. I got the Premium package so it looks like it's more complicated than it should be. Any tips will be great!
Cheers!
Ben

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

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.

In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. 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.

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.

Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a datacard (options on your car) free.

Welcome!

Welcome from Bellevue, WA (outside of Seattle)

I just got my 2006 SLK55 AMG two weeks ago but black!

I too am driving wayyy more then I thought I would be but loving it. Took it to the Seahawks game Friday and going on road trip this Sunday. I took it to Leavenworth (another day trip) the Sunday before that.

Our cars are so much fun to drive!

I got the windscreen too and had a really nice custom one etched.

Have fun with your car!
