Really joined to see if others were having the same problems I'm having... GPS won't go on toll roads despite settings checked, awful smells coming from vent, bone jarring suspension on small bumps / holes... Other than that it's a beautiful car and I've always wanted an SL...

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.

Welcome from Northamptonshire, England. The AMG line cars do have a fairly hard suspension set up, I have seen quite a few comments on the forum about this. I have the same and it can be a little jarring at times. Can't help with the other problem but someone will be able to I am sure. :smile:

Welcome from Wirral, England.


It's best to post issues separate from your intro as not all read the intros.


Site search is good and you'll find the answer to the smell may well be there (at least it is for the 171).
Start your search 'SLKWorld.com' to get forum specific answers.


eg 'SLKWorld.com bad smell' gets:
Mercedes Benz SLK Forum - Search Results for SLKWorld.com bad smell


Spare a moment to make one member very happy:

From 1st Feb you can enter your own car:
ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


Texas has a section for meets, local info etc:
U.S. Southwest Region - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


Your suspension might be the option taken at purchase, or the fact that sports cars do have a harsher suspension to gain handling.
Get your datacard, as suggested in post 2 and see.

Welcome to the forum from the mid-cities area.
You might need to change out your cabin filter to help with the smell,,,,, it might have gotten wet and starting to smell bad.

Enjoy the top down ride, bit cold here at DFW this week but sunny. I drove around with the top down yesterday and enjoyed every minute.

Welcome from Maryland Dave, your car may not take you on toll road because it knows you shouldn't have to pay to use the public highway system in the united states, that is what taxes are for, seems Germany would agree
