Hello Everyone,
I just purchased a '05 SLK 350, in November, and have been looking at it since. It's in very good condition and hope to keep it that way. The wife and I will be going on a tour in May-June, and would like to know what I should do to it before I leave. Thank you for the help,
Scott

Welcome from Chattanooga.

For your trip...make sure your maintenance is complete (oil, wiper blades and check your tires)
Only thing left to do is put the top down and enjoy....

Enjoy,
Dave

Welcome from Indy! I'm planning an SLK meet in West/South Central Indiana, June 4th. I'll be posting more info as soon as I've done some re-con work(a couple of restaurants and a few roads).
Stay tuned...

Welcome from southern California.

As FLSTF stated, the usual checks before a long trip. Make sure all scheduled maintenance are up-to-date. What is the vehicle's current mileage? Make sure all fluids are good, check condition of the serpentine belt, check tires for excessive wear or uneven wear patterns. Make sure the supplied air compressor works.

Welcome from Southern Illinois! I'm going to suggest a can of TPMS compatible flat fixer for your trip. I'm not fond of fixing flats along the road...good insurance for 7$.

Welcome from Ottawa Canada. Where in Michigan... post some fotos!
Fresh wipers and a full tank of fluid. Tires are the proper pressure. If you're close to an oil change, do it the week before (in case they do it wrong and you get a leak). AAA membership never hurts either.

Welcome from MD!...I'd say get a secondary credit card with a picture of your SLK printed on it, because you'll have a reserved pump at gas stations, lol....I think having a properly inflated spare tire is a good note.
