Been stealing you guys' ideas for at least 10 years, so I thought I'd join you.?. I have a 99 Sport Ed. 5spd (105K). In the 13 years I've owned her, I have rebuilt three of the five hydraulic cylinders for the roof, and replaced roof liner, cam and crank sensors, both ignition coils. I've repainted the interior parts that peeled, and resown seat edge seams. I've repaired the radio display to original specs, as well as repairing the 6 CD trunk changer. I've replaced both remote key fob housings using EBay. That's all the tricky stuff; belts, batteries, plugs, mass air flow sensor, fuel filter,...etc as well.
I got almost all of my advice over the years from this forum, so thank you sincerely...saved me many thousands of dollars. I am retired, so I have the time to research, and this is the best source of info out there!

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

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.
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.
