Hello slkworld forum!

I just bought an SLK350 R171 stick shift manual. Black exterior, black interior. Just drove it 1300 miles and love it.

Now that I actually own one, I can contribute at the appropriate time in earnest.

Being a guest has allowed me to zero in on what I wanted to buy and understand all the nuances before purchasing. I've been searching for 1 1/2 years and finally pulled the trigger.

The car has that
1. seat warmer problem, light goes on for a few seconds and then disappears.
2. and the previous owner said something about leaking hydraulic fluid in the roof mechanism.

So I'll be digging through all the cool postings on how to address these issues.

Thank you!
Carson
