Hello to all.
My partner and I have just purchased our first Mercedes. Her indoors has always wanted a convertible. We thought we would look around, but actually purchased the first car we looked at. Hope we have done the right thing. The car is a 2004 200SLK compressor with 66K on the clock. We have only had it a few days, and realise we know nothing about Mercedes cars, joining the forum seemed the sensible thing, to perhaps meet other like minded people, and find out more about the SLK.

Regards
Badger

Hi Badger, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Bill's Den: Documents

Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Spring is here~Gummi Pflege! Lube your seals/Lithium grease your joints/hinges

Download your car’s brochure:
Mercedes Brochure Archive

Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
• SmartTop: http://www.slkworld.com/general-discussion/121481-what-smarttop-all-members-keep-talking-about.html
• Shorty antenna
• LED license plate bulbs
• LED parking lights
• Chrome indicator bulbs (still flash orange, but removes the ‘fried egg’ look from your headlight housings)
• OEM windscreen or Lighted/etched windscreen

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 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 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

What model

Hi, and thanks for your welcome. perhaps you might tell us first what R model we have purchased. It is on a 04 plate. We also have other questions to ask, but will do a search first. Many thanks.

Hi Badger,
Welcome to the forum from sunny Norfolk!
Sounds like you have an R171 model - the one with a pointy snout.
Lots of info on here about these cars.
Cheers

Russ

Welcome aboard from another rural Suffolk country bumpkin.

Enjoy the Merc and the forum, someone usually knows if you needs any help with anything.
