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.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

Take note of the link to get a free datacard (although USA can do this for themselves). It'll be in the formal welcome post.

It tells you what was on a car when it first left the showroom.

There's also a good guide on what to look for when buying:

And a recalls thread:

SLK55 at Last!

First, many thanks to all those who have posted so much useful information about Mercedes SLKs on this forum. Those many posts and the answers to my questions have been a great help in tracking down my new ride.



My recent purchase is a 2009 SLK55, Palladium Silver with red/black leather. It has only 29,000 miles and in really fine condition. My previous toy was a 2000 BMW M Roadster. It was great fun to drive and I loved the instant response of an inline 6 with a manual transmission, but I was ready for something newer and a bit quieter at speed. The SLK55 is all of that and more. My wife and I both think that the SLK55 handles a bit better in normal or somewhat spirited driving, has better visibility to the side, and the acceleration is outstanding. It is also quiet enough to enjoy the sound system or have a normal conversation at 70 MPH. Unlike the BMW, which was tiring for longer trips and had at bit less luggage space, we expect to make the SLK55 a frequent choice for our trips to visit grandchildren or vacation weekends.


Also, special thanks to jbanks15 for his patience with my difficulties in responding to his pms and for promptly posting my data card.
