SLK 200 R172 Owner From Brunei

Hi all

Im a proud owner of an R172 SLK 200 Indium Grey colour. Born and raised in Brunei. I've slowly mod my car to look like an R172 SLK 55 which includes the 10 spoke Matt Black rims, carbon fibre SLK55 diffuser, carbon fibre SLK55 ducktail, Piecha exhaust system and i've foiled all the chrome parts of the car to glossy carbon fibre including the interior. My next part of the project is to change the DRL and probably get the AMG brakes and hopefully im done.

I've also tried to search on how to replace air filters for R172 in the forum but wasnt able to find one with pictures. I was thinking of replacing it with K&N. Can someone assist on this one?

Thanks,
Ari

Ari,

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

https://www.slkworld.com/slk-r172-cla...placement.html

some don't use k&n due to the 'oil' on the filters can damage the MAF. I said 'some'
others use green or bmc

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, 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.

Hi Ari, a warm welcome from Southern Arizona. Good to have you on board. Sounds like quite a project. It would be nice to see pictures. Enjoy the people, the forum, and top down cruisin'.

Hi confirm, your PM box is full so I thought I'd ask you here:

I saw you replaced the standard diffuser with the CF one, was that an original mercedes part or aftermarket?

Do you know if the official mercedes SLK55 diffuser fits the amg package slk250?

Hi Maurauth

The CF diffuser is an aftermarket one. It will fit all SLK R172 with AMG bodykit.

It's been a year and a half since he was here

What you can do is to send a PM to @jbanks15 and include a link to the specific post that has those pics and he may be able to fix the pic links.
