I used to sail a lot. As time don't allow me to do that any more I sold the boat. Used to have a wind over my head I decided to get myself another windy toy and bought a SLK. And I must say that I enjoy the ride very much.

I found this forum to be an excelent environment for experience exchange with excelent guys, so I decided to join. I already found some usefull info about replacing Audio 20 with aftermarket one, a guide how to close vario roof manually (if something goes wrong), and much more. I hope it won't be necessary to dig a lot in maintenance section of the forum but more in modification.

Regards,
Primoz

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

First please update your profile with your location, if you haven’t already done so, as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
Follow this to update: ‘User CP’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ (and then click ‘SAVE CHANGES’ button at the bottom of the page).


Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.

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

First please update your location in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.



Thank you

Welcome from Plymouth, England.

I was always told that there were only ever two good days when owning a boat - the day you buy it and the day you sell it! I'm sure owing your SLK will be much more enjoyable.
Welcome, I loved using sail boats when I was young, and like the comparison to SLK! And I always heard that boats were holes in the water that you poured your money into.

Hi Primoz! Welcome to SLKWorld.com from North Alabama! Congratulations on your purchase of an SLK! My dad and I used to sail when I was young. I used to come home from the lake exhausted! But it was fun ⛵
Anyhow, I'm glad you are getting in on the fun of driving an SLK!
Happy Driving?
Rory

Welcome from Southern Oregon, USA. I too used to sail, my brother and I had our own sailboat when we were teenagers but I haven't sailed for years.

Hello guys,
thanks for welcomes. Sailing on east coast of Adriatic sea was fun; could make you relaxed (or tired :), depends on a company you have) and big waves could bring you adrenaline into high levels. Nevertheless time goes on.

I see that this forum has it all ... is there any thread how to connect sails to SLK?

Regards, Primoz
