Got my yellow '03 SLK 320 (~174,000 km on the clock) a couple of months back, purchased from a friend who sold it for a stupid price :grin: pretty much everything is stock except the radio.

I have to be honest, I'm still too scared to 'fiddle' with the car and do any mods to it at the moment :|, but I'm on the look out for any great ideas on the forums :grin:

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 datacard (options on your car) free.

Hi and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)

As @jbanks15 (Jeff) has already said above, SmartTop has to be your first mod... IMHO, all SLKs should have been shipped from the factory with the functionality that SmartTop provides! :)

Greetings from Tennessee !

You live in a beautiful part of the world. I've never visited, but several of my friends have, and one even brought home a wife. :)

No problem taking it easy on the mods, but let me warn you that once you get started it's hard to stop. There's a gentleman who goes by the name of Leapyfish on here who posts a myriad of links on the R170 in his signature. That's a great place to start learning more about your new car.

Welcome to the Forum.
