New SLK 350 owner from Palm Harbor, FL

Meant to do this a long time ago, just never got around to it...sorry! Anyway, I just recently upgraded my 2003 SLK 230 to a 2006 R171 SLK 350. I loved my little supercharged 4-banger but it had it's share of problems that, fortunately I was able to take care of myself. My new ride is AWESOME, with only 30K miles and it looks and drives like brand new...what a ride!!! I've already upgraded all interior lights to LED's as well as H7 headlight bulbs to new Xenon gas 5000K bright white ones as well as the 2 #194 parking bulbs in the headlight assembly to 5-SMD LED's. What a difference it made...gone are the drab yellowish lights to super white light from the LED's. I've ordered replacement under-door fixtures that project the MB logo on the ground and can't wait for them to arrive from China so I can see how they look. I am seriously considering installing the SmartTop module since I DO have the IR door handle option but it is hit or miss and the RF would be MUCH better, especially being able to custom-tailor it with so much options. I especially like the fact that I would be able to open or close the top while driving, which I was able to do with my SLK 230 but for some reason MB decided to take that away from the 2006 SLK 350 Any feedback from you guys that have already installed the SmartTop module would be appreciated...thanks in advance! I tried to attach some pix of my new ride but got a message that the files were too large. Is there any way to attach larger image files? (mine are approx 1.26 Mb in size)

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.
