I think this might be the link to Col's R172 group:
Mercedes-Benz SLK & SLC R172 Owners Club

Don't forget that if you have an R171, we already have a Facebook group for us here too:

Link added to first post. Please note I've modified the group name so it's possible that Dave's link above may stop working. Just need lots of 172 owners and enthusiasts to join up and post their content.

The R172 Facebook group has gone from 2 members to 24 members in a day or so. I think that's a pretty good start but still room for improvement. Thanks to all from SLKWorld who have joined so far.

From a quick search it appears there are several! Take your pick!

There are a few, true. However most are 'closed' groups or non-English - and none linked to SLKWorld!

It's fairly easy to set one up if you want to and then post a thread on here as I have maybe?

Yes, I know Col. I was asking if one existed before I did so.

Cheers.

Just a bit of an update about this Facebook group for the R172! I set this group up last year in July. Since then it has grown steadily.
There are currently 173 members from around the globe!

Although primarily for sharing photos, videos and information on the R172 models I welcome all SLK content regardless of model/year. New members are more than welcome.
