Thumbs up Greetings - new enthusiast from Sydney Australia

Thanks to the founders, moderators, active members and sponsors that make this forum go! G'day from Sydney.... (we don't actually say that very often ), but its a well meant greeting none the less.

I came across SLK world whilst doing research on SLK audio upgrades.

As of late 2016/early 2017, I'm working on a Nov05 SLK 55 AMG, with the Comand/HK package. The owner has challenged me to keep factory AGW/speakers/Steering Wheel Control and install a high-end after market Pioneer head unit. So far, its 'Down the Rabbit Hole' I go.
I predominantly do custom audio work, so doing integration work on OEM digital audio based components is not something I'm used to or get many requests on.

These SLK's, with short wheel base and unusual dimension are quirky and fun.Your forum is a wealth of information! Kudos to all involved!! - CPWinter

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

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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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
  • Finally, the Picture of the Day section is guaranteed to have something to make you smile each weekday morning!

Thank you
Dave
