Figured I'd finally join!

This is the best, most comprehensive SLK resource out there, so I figured I'd finally join. You guys are an awesome, helpful community.

I love my 2001 SLK320 and clearly everyone else loves their SLKs too. I got mine when I was 17 (I'm 18 now) as the first car I bought on my own.

Let me say again, I love my SLK.


I plan on very soon buying new headlamps for it, as the current ones are a bit retro to me. Replaced the grille too; the old one was looking pretty rough. Went with silver for the class. Anyone have headlamp recommendations? I've been looking at the typical halo ones.

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

You just missed our picnic!
43 SLKs

https://www.slkworld.com/u-s-florida/...29-2016-a.html


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.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

Fine looking motor.
Enter RoTM:
https://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submiss...mpetition.html
It's free and there's a prize.

Don't think a newbie could win with an R170?
One did a couple of month back.
https://www.slkworld.com/rotm-winner/...th-winner.html

Full set of pics near the end of this thread.

Notice something?

It's red too!

Regional threads:
U.S. Florida - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Only two states get their own regional. There's a reason for that.
Plenty going on.

There's a R170 diy link in my signature below.

If you use the search (top rightish) start it with 'SLKWorld.com'
That's where you'll find lots of info on the headlight swaps.
Quite a bit of choice I think.
