Hello SLKWorld, excited new member here! I have been a long time Jeep owner and I like doing a lot of mods on my Jeeps. All my family and friends tried to tell me that owning a Mercedes would put me in the poor house, but what they don't know is that I plan on doing a lot of stuff myself (just like with my Jeeps)! So naturally, I have reached out to SLKworld to get all the inside tips I need as a newb to Mercedes. I now own an '06 SLK 350 and I am looking for all the basic, must do first, upgrades. Thanks to jbanks15 email, I now have a starter list of things to do.

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.

Congrats! You came to the right place. Within this site you will find many examples of mods done to your same model and can assess which ones work for you before you make that investment. And what's more is the amount of knowledge the members have and how willing they are to help.

Have fun!
