SLK R170 early Dealer Service Briefing Video 44 minutes. Top Viewing!

Lots of useful tips, very interesting, covers many areas.

Some unseen crash videos , rear impact and full front.
Did you know the bootlid is specially designed to be secured and fold in rear impact so it doesn’t come at the passengers? Good to know.
Rollover also featured.

Lots of tips included for new owners, tow points, bulb access, manual roof closure proceedure.
Lots of pictures of the structure I had not seen.
They really pulled out all stops to make the SLK as safe and crashworthy as they could.

An odd but helpful video. Jeff, do you think it's worthy of stickyness? It would be a good resource for new owners to learn a bit about their cars.

Although it has tips, it is a bit awkward to use as a diy.

Wouldn't use it if it was new. One way it might work, too many ways it won't.

Get a plug kit if anything or auto service if desired.

Thanks for posting gotta love it they show the cheapest Euro Model (Slk 200 with chrome rims) for the English speaking Folks. Was the video for the Scottish market??

Here is the same car as a used car review. Boy that Lemon Drop made the rounds.
