    Maybe `torque` is not the most apt verb to use, but I was test driving a manual SLK 350 (2006) 84K miles with the top down and on the straight-aways when I would apply the gas I could feel the car twist from one side to the other. My assumption, at minimum, is that the shocks/struts are out in...

    Hi guys, Apologises if that has already been discussed, I have tried looking after slk350 fuel consumption/economy etc but I could only see posts referring to the R171, none for the R172, so please guide me towards the right place if I'm reposting an older Thread. Ok, now here's my story...

    Hi, thank-you for accepting me onto the Forum. I am on my second SLK - The first was a r170 320 manual. My current car is a r171 350 Designo with Comand and Sports Package, colour Mystic Blue. I have just started researching r172 models to see if I can be tempted to update!

    Six months ago I bought a burgundy 2009 SLK 350 from the dealer with 14,971 miles on it. I am delighted with it because it is essentially a brand new car without a scratch, blemish, door ding, or nick in the paint anywhere at a third of the price of a new one. I like to do minor maintenance and...

    Just recently gave my 1989 Mercedes 300CE a rest by purchasing a Royal Blue 2009 Mercedes SLK 350. Have to say i am very impressed by the vehicel and have loved every moment of it. I have "Service D" coming up in 6k miles so fingers crossed that nothing costly happens. Anyway, I'm Bryant, Im...

    We were heading North on the 5 freeway when the car in front ran over a huge piece of what looked like the bed liner from a pick up truck. No chance to avoid hitting it: Looks like a new front spoiler and probably a new pair of side skirts are in the plans for the near future. My question...

    Hi all, I've been wanting an SLK for some time now. Having sold my BMW330 Coupe and been given a Company car, I had some funds! I decided to buy one as a project and found my 350 which had some frontal damage - wings, bumper, suspension and no power (fuse / battery?) but otherwise sound! I now...

    Hi, I pick up my second hand SLK 350 tomorrow morning. I recently sold my TVR Chimaera. I didn't want to let it go but I've got an old back injury and find it difficult to depress a clutch. I went after a Porche Boxster but didn't like the change. It was almost like turbo lag. I then...

    Hello fellow SLK fans. New here and have been reading through the posts for the past 6 hours. I can't seem to find an answer to my question. Has anyone installed the Exhaust Headers from Kleeman on the 350? http://shop.kleemann.dk/shop/hiflow-exhaust-headers-337p.html Do the downpipes...

    Is there a button to push for when the top is down to hear the car stereo? The volume is fine for when the top is up, but when the top is down you can barely hear the music. We can carry on a normal conversation in the car with the top down, but we can't hear the radio. we have the Kermon...

    Here is my problem: I have a deposit on a new SLK 350 for September delivery. As I am away for most of May I have until the end of next week to spec the car and finally agree to purchase, or cancel and take back my deposit. This will be my third SLK. Last week I had a drive in a Porsche 911...
