Hey everyone, long time guest checking in from Ontario. Stock SLK55 amg, 420/400 Evo X GSR. Car was my fathers. Couple questions (know to search, been creeping a bit)... infamous trunk not holding up, broken paddle shifter & cracked bumper. Any recommendation of replacement parts OEM or aftermarket. Thanks 28435309_381558015643780_8170474981927419904_n.jpg

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.

Struts, price MB cos it is not bad.
Remember to take the plug out. It restricts movement.
That's the bit folks forget (including me on one occasion.).
