I just got my 2006 SLK-55 AMG this weekend (black) and am super excited about my car.

The place I bought it at is replacing the brakes all around and 4 new tires.

I am getting quotes for the maintenace and man are the spark plugs expensive from the dealership! $945...I have some quotes being gathered from a reputable mercedes mechanic also.

Thanks for having me!

The Aggie in my user name is because I went to Texas A&M and class of 94!

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.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
$945 for plugs....That is a rip off-If that is all that is needed do not let the dealership do the work.
