hi All,

just bought me a 2010 SLK 350 in black.


Must say I'm very impressed so far :) its comfortable and fairly fast.

Has AMG alloys on it, also I think it has the sport package but not sure, air scarfs and heated seats, folding mirrors ETC.

I have been a Jag man for many years and always shied away from Mercedes to be honest but after driving a CLK the other week I got the bug and bought the SLK and I am happy with it :)

Well hope to speak to you all soon, this is an excellent site and I'm glad to be a member .

Rob.

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.

Hello Rob welcome from Mersea Island, Essex, UK. It is good to know that the car has found a good home. I owned it up until April 2017 when I purchased my current SLK55. I would have kept her if I could have afforded to. The car does have the AMG Sports Package. One thing that you may or may not know is the car when I sold it had a Smarttop fitted which if you do a search on the forum is one of the most popular mods. When I sold it I deactivated it so the roof went back to operating as per the Mercedes Benz user manual. I left a note in the car to say a Smarttop was fitted with details how to reactivate it but as I traded it in that note may not have been passed on. For your information here is a link to the operating instructions for the Smarttop firmware version 3.75 which will tell you how to switch it back on. mods4cars product manual


Enjoy the car and hopefully you will bring it along to the various SLKWorld meets that are arranged throughout the year. If you want to ask me anything about the car you will be able to Private Message me once you have 15 posts. An easy way of getting these is to welcome new members. Regards Martin


PS: A couple of pictures taken in April 2017 just before I sold her

Welcome Rob from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

How did you get the folding mirrors?
Your SLK picture doesn’t show them folded.

Just wondering?

Hi Don,

The folding mirrors were already fitted with a switch on the mirror control fitted to the centre console (think it was fitted when new)


Regards
Rob.
