Having joined the forum last week, I actually collected my SLK today. It's a 58 plate MY09 SLK 350 and I already love the power! I even got the top down on the way home and the sun came out for a bit.


It came with COMAND NTG 2.5 which has never been updated, so my first job is to work out if it is worth keeping or whether I should replace it with a Dynavin (the interface looks pretty much ideal to me) or similar.

See you around,

Andrew

Welcome from the Wirral.

Nice looking car. The better half has an 09 350, she loves it.

The UK has quite an active group, you can see what they get up to and dates for meets here:
United Kingdom Region - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

There's a competition on right now. Why not enter your car?
There's a prize to be had:

Thanks for updating your car and location straight off the bat.

Hi Andrew, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us, completing your profile and posting an intro! :)

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there! :tu:

There's a summary post that I maintain for all UK meets here, and links to examples and pictures from this year's past meets are available here.

We've also started plotting where our UK members are recently - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
Thank you
Dave

Hi Andrew
I have a Silver SLK350 as well a little older than yours. I've been very happy with it. As you say it does have legs and sounds nice too if you put your foot down.
Welcome to SLK World.

Welcome from North Hampshire - Great Colour....!! :tu:

I've had My R171/350 for 4 years and still enjoying the top down driving R)

My COMAND was updated for free just before the 3 year warranty ran out.
But use an air vent mounted TomTom SatNav with live traffic, for navigation & traffic avoidance..
