My name is Caroline and I bought a 2001 SLK 320 three weeks ago. I am having a hard time finding everything I need to get it back in top condition. I have a great mechanic (not at the dealer) who knows what he is doing, but some parts are hard to find. For example, I was replacing the auto-dimming mirror with a manual one until I could have the other one repaired. Instead of the mirror coming off, leaving the mount behind, the whole thing came off, including a chunk of the windshield. Can't get the mount off the old mirror, can't mount the new mirror on the new windshield, and don't want to drive without one until I get the old one back repaired. I haven't been able to find the mount on line. (The shop is paying for the new windshield.)

Then there are the not working tail lights.

It's a good thing this car was very cheap. The body is perfect and the interior very nice but the last driver was 17 and didn't really care about maintenance.


I already love this car but am back driving my 1990 Miata until I get the lights and mirror solved.
If anybody can help, I would really appreciae it!
