Hello to all SLK members (again!). Yes, I have been a member except that I'm sorry I have not visited in a long while. So long in fact, that I had trouble signing in because I'd forgotten my membership details, hence a "new" one. Anyway, its good to be back and by way of reintroducing myself, I'm a businessman, an avid golfer, and an SLK enthusiast, having owned an R170 and R171 at one point. I've sold the R170 since my last visit to this forum and so I have the R171 left with me. She is a 2008 model, an SLK 350. I get to drive her once a week, every Sunday morning for about an hour before the sun goes up. I like to drive her top down but since it gets pretty hot very quickly, my window is very short. That's the reason why up to now she has just clocked under 25T kms, after 8 years.

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

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:
  • SmartTop: What is this SmartTOP all the members keep talking about?
  • Shorty antenna
  • LED license plate bulbs and parking lights
  • Chrome/stealth 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/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

Welcome back from Wirral, England.

Great looking car.

We have a monthly competition for Ride of The Month.
A first time poster won with an R170 won last month.
All SLK models have won previously. New and old members frequently win.
It's free to enter and you already have three good photos (you can enter 3 pics).
Simply post your photo(s) in this thread:
http://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submissions-voting/394345-november-2016-slkworld-com-ride-month-sponsored-windrestrictor.html

Your regional threads are here:
Asia Region - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

We're the opposite of you.
Short window for top down, then it rains.

350s are a great car. We have one in our house.

Funny it is, for a fresh member to welcome an old one, but still, welcome once again.
Nice ride! Really like it.
You definitely have to join the ROTM with this as November seems to be the month that gathered all the silver ones...
