New member from Belgium

For a couple of years I've wanteda roadster to make small trips in Belgium and our neigboring countries (France, the Netherlands, Germany, UK). Since a couple of weeks I was able convince the wife to go along with it, and next weekend we are going to pick up a 2005 SLK 200 in Germany.
Using the VIN code I was able to get the "factory data" of the car, but no accident or service history. I already bought a report with vin-info.com, but these sections remained empty. Any suggestions?
To be complete, professionally I'm driving a MB E300 hybrid (2012) and my wife has a C200 (2011).
Keep on the good work with this wonderful site!

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us!

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Bill's Den: Documents

Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Spring is here~Gummi Pflege! Lube your seals/Lithium grease your joints/hinges

Download your car’s brochure:
Mercedes Brochure Archive

Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
• SmartTop: https://www.slkworld.com/general-disc...ing-about.html
• Shorty antenna
• LED license plate bulbs & parking lights
• Chrome indicator bulbs (still flash orange, but removes the ‘fried egg’ look from your headlight housings)
• OEM windscreen or Lighted/etched windscreen

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
• Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
FREE!! How to get a free data card!
• 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
• New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
• Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Thank you
Dave

I'm afraid I can't help with advice on accident history, perhaps a more local member from Belgium will add some advice here for you soon. Have you tried contacting your local MB dealer to discuss the service history? You may have to prove to them that you own the car, and it may only be partial history, but might still be useful).
