Hi,
Have been looking at site for a couple of weeks and found it to be really interesting and enjoy looking at how all the members help each other out,its a great idea,and helps keeping the merc bills down. Pleased with my slk280, sounds great with the roof down, could not believe the roar of the engine the first time roof was down.
I have recently purchased a 2005 slk280 r171 auto, 22k miles and have noticed when i push hard on the accelerator in sports mode, at about 3000revs , i am getting a slight pinking noise and just as rev goes past 3000 the noise goes, if i accelerate slower the noise is not there. I have been using v-power petrol and thought this would have cured it. Can any body give me an idea what might be wrong,because i thought the v-power feul would have sorted it.

Many thanks
Anthony

You shouldn't need to use additives for normal EU petrol, our standard 95 RON is similar to premium in the states. The Shell 99RON V Power is said to be stuffed to the brim with additives already, no need to add more.
