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.
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.
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.

The last auto I owned was a 1996 Honda Civic. Good car but a terrible gearbox! By comparison the 9G...
Hi, just joined. I am in Ft Worth, TX with an 06 SLK280. With some help from the forum I’ve added Airscarf seats, digital climate controls, and a SmartTop. Thanks to everyone for the advice so far.
Just found this site while looking at upgrade possibilities for stereo in my 2009 SLK350. Bought it about a week ago with ~48000 miles on it. Currently is 6th car (until I sell something?). Will be commuter. Looked at Toyota 86 (too little power), Lotus Elise (too hard to get in/out), and...
