Hi all, I bought my wife a 2005 slk350 a week ago. This is our first Mercedes and wow what a car- we had a 1989 Ferrari GTS328 once and wish we hadn't sold it (sold it for 95k, now worth a LOT more. But anyway, this is actually quicker and only cost 15k with 140k on the clock. I need a boot rubber stopper and the roof is a bit rattly, but otherwise it is seriously a beautiful car

The SLK roof seals do benefit from a clean & treatment with "Gummi Pflege" to help protect & lubricate them :cool:

Thanks heaps Trev, can you tell me where I put it? Is there some sort of diagram? Also, It is missing a rubber stopper in the boot on left hand side- It looks a bit like a rubber door stopper for internal house doors, goes just towards the rear of car near the plastic thingy that slides back and forward, any idea where they sell them online and how much they are?
Cheers and thanks in advance
