Recently my brother purchased a 2001 SLK 230 with 23,000 miles for his wife's milestone birthday. It looked braand new. I liked it so much I initiated a search for a 320 and found one with 43,000 miles and purchased it in December 2015. It is not as nice as my brother's, but it is a designo with 030 oem Gold paint. Unfortunately the previous owner had fallen ill a couple of years ago and entrusted the care of the car to her son. He left it sitting in the San Diego sun for two years and the trunk, top, hood, etc. needs repainting, which is scheduled for the near future. In the short time I've had it I've replaced the oem chrome wheels with 10-spoke R171 staggered mags; new tires; Alpine HD radio; Audi A6 head restraints: new OEM grille: Gentec self dimming rear view mirror with backup camera, OEM mirror was defective; and created a cap for the top of the gear shift knob which was missing. Cap investmennt: $3.00 materials and 2 hours production time. I've attached a picture of the cap on the shift knob and one of me in the car before any mods.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

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. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
