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.

Welcome from New Hampshire, standard bulbs should be plenty bright it your lens's are not fogged over. There may be a wiring issue, check for a bad ground.

Dim low beams

I'm a newbie too, so welcome! I have a 2009 SLK300 with H7 bulbs and I feel the same way about their brightness.
Just swapped in Phillips X-treme xps2 bulbs (low beams only) that claim 80% more light; I haven't had a chance to drive them around much at night.
First impression is the lights are brighter, but not as much as i want them to be. I'll know better in a couple of weeks.

Note - High beams are good, just the lows seemed dim.
