I've been a member for a few months but I havent really posted because I didn't have an SLK :/ just purchased a 2006 SLK350 today :laugh: just a few things to fix up on the car (see list below) and it should be good to go :) (will try to post pictures tomorrow).

1: noticed the car rumbles a bit when idle but not when its moving (did a ton of research and looks like its the motor mounts).

2.My vehicle has the comand unit installed but the 5 disc CD changer has been removed. ( never really used cd's so not really an issue for me just wondering what I can do with the cable that was supposed to be connected to the changer).

3. Minor scratches/ scrapes on paint but not really an issue for me as I've dreamt of having an SLK for years and I finally have one :) (took lots and lots of saving but worth it tbh)

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.

Concord CA. Love the SLK so far but discovered a few more problems nothing major though and no check engine light thank god.

1. Weatherstripping on driver side was allowing a few rain droplets to trickle into the inside of the car. ( looks like the weatherstripping is folded a bit when the window shuts itself no biggie.

2. Car moves in a straight line but steering wheel is a few degrees to the right.

still trying to get the engine / tranny mounts replaced don't know where to start. Hopefully I can find someone to do it without it having to cost too much. I would try to replace them myself but I dont trust myself working on the car just yet.
