Hello, SLK friends. I traded in my SLK320 and got an SLK55. In an effort to "make it mine" I've ordered the iTronicBT, smarttop, and anystream from Cartronics. Has anyone experienced delays with cartronics orders? I ordered several items 3 weeks ago and haven't gotten a shipping confirmation yet. No replys to vm or emails (although the vm was left today). I know they basically said "don't bug us" when I purchased my items but 3 weeks is a long time to wonder about a $1,200 order. I know they sometimes check out the forums so I hope you guys don't mind me using the forum as a batsignal.

chaquie,

Welcome to the World’s Premier Mercedes-Benz SLK Community from Valrico, Florida!


Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.



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.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member or guest will address your question.
If you wish to PM (Private Message) someone, 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.
New members and guests 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.

Chacquie, when I was doing some research prior to adding a iPod adapter to the SLK, I saw numerous complaints about the absolutely poor service at Cartronics. Enough to convince me not to buy from them.....Good Luck.

I purchase a mObridge from Sonic Electronix and had it in my hands in 3-4 days. Works great and I love not having the CDC in the glove box.

Thanks for the welcome everyone. I'll post an intro and update my account tonight. I saw some info regarding expensive shipping in my research but nothing on slow shipping. In fairness to Cartronics they didn't really say "don't bug us" but that they are a bunch of techs and do not have a clerical staff to communicate as much as we may be used to. With that being said I'm pretty close to disputing the charge with my cc company. 3 weeks is a long time.

I didn't realize there was a store on this forum. I'd much rather support the community. I'll go there if this Cartronics order falls through.

I heard back from Cartronics. They are saying it will ship in 48 hours. There was a customs problem with the anystream apparently. I really wish they had told me instead of making me chasing them down. Communication costs very little but has a very high return on investment.
