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.

Hi Mike, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

I have one of the WindRestrictor wind screens fitted to my R171...


I made the mistake of ordering it without any etching, and then regretted it so added an etched effect AMG sticker to it instead...

Hi Mike, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

I also fitted a Windrestrictor windscreen. Mine is etched and illuminated. A great mod! Great people to deal with, and I'd definitely recommend them. :tu:

Dave's (@dbgrn ) photos show it off well.

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

I got mine from the dealer its glass and easy to look through in the mirror. SLK site sponsor has some cool individual ones too and you can customize them. I hate the black meshy thing MB gives you, looks like crap and you can't see through them,

You mean the black "panty hose" mesh fabric rear wind draught stop.
