  1. Wrapping center console

    General Modifications R172
    Wrapping really isn't hard as long as you have a heat source like a heat gun or hairdryer. Then an Exacto knife to cut around the edges once you have it in place is all you should need. The tough part is cutting around buttons that can't be removed. I have done several of my cars including the...
  2. Another Airscarf Retrofit

    SLK R171 Class DIY
    Thanks. Yes, replacing that back console with the subwoofer was the best thing I did for the audio system. Sounds so much fuller now. I even put a little AMG plaque on it so it looks more stock.
  3. Another Airscarf Retrofit

    SLK R171 Class DIY
    Well, I finally got around to adding the Airscarf system to my 2008 SLK 55 AMG. I collected all the parts almost a year ago, but never took the time to install it all until Saturday. Here is what I had to buy: -2 seat blowers from eBay 1718300008 $120 each -Wiring harness to replace the...
  4. Anyone know where to get the 1715409206 harness for retrofit of airscarf?

    General Modifications R171
    Got the other parts from ebay. According to the two Airscarf retrofit threads that is the right harness.
  5. Anyone know where to get the 1715409206 harness for retrofit of airscarf?

    General Modifications R171
    I decided to do the retrofit of airscarf in my car. Anyone know where I can still get the 1715409206 wiring harness? I have electric/heated seats and think I have all of the other stuff required for the install. There use to be a guy named Frank who made harnesses, but being in the US, I am...
  6. Rear speaker replacement

    SLK R171 General Discussion
    For the HK system, I believe the whole plastic panel that holds the speaker just pops off like a kick panel would. I don't recall a screw but it may have one. Its the smallest goofiest little speaker at only about 2.5". It's hard to replace with anything except a factory speaker without...

    How would I do the broomstick trick with the Smart Top? It opens all the way when I pull the button so not sure how to stop it midway with this mod. Thanks.
  8. Are shocks the same on 030 Performance package?

    Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    Bilstein got back to me and they said their cross-reference of the 030 Performance shock (171 320 05 30) is their B8. This is interesting since the B8 is the shorter stroke version of the B6. Oh well good to know at some point if they need to be replaced.
  9. Are shocks the same on 030 Performance package?

    Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    Thanks I sent the question into Bilstein. I'll report back.
  10. Are shocks the same on 030 Performance package?

    Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    Ok, thanks. So to recap it appears that at least in the front, it is a different Shock/strut than the normal SLK 55 AND it is a different spring too. With the 030 package its 171 320 05 30 for the shock and 171 321 18 04 for the springs which are 2x yellow and 1x red. So I wonder if the OEM...
  11. Are shocks the same on 030 Performance package?

    Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    The numbers on the springs are confusing me too. When I look at the parts websites they have two different springs. One with 2x yellow 1x orange and one with 2x yellow and 1x red. I found an old post where someone was asking this same question and it seems like the 2x yellow 1x red was the...
  12. Are shocks the same on 030 Performance package?

    Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    Thanks, so are you saying there is no difference in equipment on the 030 package? How do they change it to be stiffer then? I assumed a stiffer spring.
  13. Are shocks the same on 030 Performance package?

    Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    Does anyone know if the front shocks are the same on the 030 Performance package as the regular SLK 55? I am finding conflicting information on this. It appears that it might just be the spring which is different and not the shock itself. Anyone know? I have a 2008.

  15. Got my new tires!

    Tires, Wheels, Brakes & Suspension
    I really like these tires. They definitely grip far better than my Pirrelis. Starting to slip just a little bit in the very cold weather but that is to be expected and I really won't drive the car much in the winter anyway.
  16. Full Speaker Upgrade

    General Modifications R171
    I went with this Alpine sub. It actually sounds pretty good for a compact 8". Certainly more than the door speakers. If you have shorter legs like me, you could fit another one of these or maybe a really shallow 10" behind the seats. I think anything bigger would be hard unless you move the...
  17. Full Speaker Upgrade

    General Modifications R171
    Yes, As I mentioned, I replaced the rear vertical console with a compact subwoofer from Alpine. It adds a lot of low end and keeps a relatively low key factory look. I'd still like a little more bass, but I don't want the rattles that come with a trunk mounted sub.
  18. Full Speaker Upgrade

    General Modifications R171
    Step 7: wire up the pods. I wired the two speaker in the pods with their own wires and butt splice ends. I then put butt splice ends on the speaker wires I ran to the doors. That way I can remove it later easily if I want. I then used fabric tape to tape up the factory speaker wire...
  19. Full Speaker Upgrade

    General Modifications R171
    As many of you know I replaced my head unit a while back and at the same time ended up replacing the factory HK amp with a 4 channel pioneer amp. The factory HK speakers sound pretty good, but I consider myself an audiophile so I found myself wanting more, something with better vocals and power...

    Thanks. What kind of coding is required and does a dealer have to do it?
