Nice car. If you post up your VIN, there are several people here that can run the datacard for you, so you'll know EXACTLY what is included with the car.

Hi,

from your pictures, the only AMG parts I can see are your rims

Same post in 2 different places on the forum...
Here is my response in other thread...


Looks like you have AMG rims on your car.

Mine is not an AMG car but it is labled with AMG equipment. Rims, front/back Bumpers, Side skirts.

It may be referring to your rims as the AMG equipment.

The VIN is 17 characters long. It will start with "WDB", probably WDB170447xxxxxxxx. You should find it on your door jamb. You may find it on your license registration paperwork.

Or looking into the front dash area from the outside (via front windshield) usually on the lower corner, commonly on the left side of the vehicle.

Most probably is that the car came with optional AMG alloy wheels from the factory, 23,000km is nothing you've found yourself a gem.

Here you go. The early R170 datacards really don't have a lot of detail....

Would you mind posting a photo of how it's mounted under the seat?

Dear Ali,

I think we have almost identical cars .
Mine is also Black/ Black - SLK 230 K -1997 model with auto transmission but with OEM rims. It has 74.000 kms .

But nothing to do with AMG so far ...

Hope to see you around in ISTANBUL ...

Hello from france,

"i think it has to be refilled, too much time passed"

If your fire extinguisher is stock from MB, it should have a pressure valve control , if it's still in the green area, and never been used, could still be valid ...

anyway , I never thought 1 kg of powder should be enough to kill a car fire.
