Thank you for having this forum. I am most likely the only female (from what I have viewed) who purchased an SLK Special Edition AFTER my divorce and not before. After my 25-year-marriage ended, I needed something to differentiate me from all the other 40-something divorced females. This car did the trick, and I am happily remarried; the car did the trick!

I am the owner of a 2004 SLK320 Special Edition - my "silver bullet." As an attorney, I know the consequences of speeding. Although I will admit nothing, I like to know that when I leave court and need to let off a little steam, I can drop the top and I could drive over 120 mph with the wind in my hair.

I am the 4th owner of my car. I purchased mine in 2012 from a BMW dealer (she was a trade-in) with only 55,000 miles on. The crusty old foreign-car mechanic who checked mine out after the purchase told me I got a great deal. She has been problem free mechanically- the retractable roof is a dream. One of the previous owners put salvage-lot rims on and I have had nothing but problems from them. I have used this site to research rims and to share the total joy and peace this marvel of German manufacturing is for my psyche.

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

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 or to ‘edit’, 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 as we welcomed you to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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 or use the 'quote' button so we know who you are asking or replying to or referencing.
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.
FREE!! 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.
