Hello SLKWorld Community!

Glad to join this community. It seems to be extremely helpful.
My wife and I purchased a silver 2005 SLK350 about a year or so ago.
Love it. It's a 3rd car - since we still have young kids - for fun sunny weekend, and although it's 10 years old, it almost looks brand new :)
My Head unit (with GPS, COMAND / MOST system) just died the other day though, so I'm embarking on a fun after market replacement project, since spending the $6,000 that the Mercedes dealership quoted me for a replacement unit is out of question.
More on that project in my next post.
Kind regards to all,
Regis

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.
