Hello,

I am a new owner of a 2001 SLK 230.

It is dark red with 13,000 miles. It was purchased from a lady that is a friend and she used it only for fun drives. It has spent its life in a garage and is in great condition. It comes with new tires and battery. It does have an issue with the lighter socket and the remote control locking system is not working.

I live on Long Island and also plan to use the car mainly for fun and keep it garaged.

My primary driver is a 08 535XIT which has 75,000 miles on it and was purchased new. Because BMW does not import 5 wagons I will probably get an MB wagon when they update the E line. I think my current BMW is sporty and more fun to drive than the E line (excluding the AMG which is crazy fast)

I am glad to be a member of this group and look forward to benefiting from additional information about my SLK and some friendship.


Best regards,

Bill

Hi Bill!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome from Eureka, IL! 13,000 miles. Wow. Same model we just bought has 155K. That's a good find. Had the same issue with keyless entry. Changed batteries then did the process for programming the key. The short version is hold the unlock key for 30 seconds then start the car. There are more detailed instructions here. Good luck!
