Hi everyone,

I have been lurking for a few days after purchasing a used 2007 Mercedes-Benz SLK350.

Had a convertible for many years (and loved it!), then purchased a coupe (and regretted it for the next three years!), and now finally rejoining the "bright" side with this SLK (pictures attached).

I look forward to do plenty of reading, especially on alternatives to the Comand APS NTG1 SLK-Class W171 currently installed on the vehicle!

Have a great day!

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
  • SmartTop: What is this SmartTOP all the members keep talking about?
  • Shorty antenna
  • LED license plate bulbs and parking lights
  • Chrome/stealth indicator bulbs (still flash orange, but removes the ‘fried egg’ look from your headlight housings)
  • OEM windscreen or Lighted/etched windscreen
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
Thank you

You just missed the Florida Oktoberfest, but they have plenty of other things going on.
Florida is effectively the active capital of the forum members wise.

Saw the pics this morning. Got the car on the 28th, so it would have been hard to make it to the party. It looked like a GREAT one!

Welcome from Athens Greece.
Nice car.
You will find many information here, especially at the most recent threads.
Efharisto poli, Charlie350!

I'm already digging deep. As I mentioned, I am interested in finding an alternative to the COMAND unit, let's see how that goes.

Welcome from central Florida. Where in south Florida are you located. As Avel Du mentioned, you just missed the Florida picnic. Try to catch the next one.

Hey El_Toro!

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I am in Fort Lauderdale!

I know the feeling, went to school in London and traveled around quite a bit!

I miss the UK!

Sun should be on its way (it may take a while though, as I sent it "ground"... ETA is...well...next summer?!?!?) :wink:
