Hello all, I join here a few months ago and absolutely love all of the valuable information. I bought my 2003 SLK 320 a couple of months ago and I love it. It is also fun to work on as well.

The vehicle had a few minor problems:

1. drivers side mirror was cracked, replaced with a $12 mirror.

2. pass side headlight was frosted. Tried the sanding method and it never came close to perfect, so I just said, screw it and bought a new one.

3. driver's side brake light bulb still not setting properly. Currently working on it.

4. ashtray not closing properly, wedged something under it until I can take it apart.

5. windshield pump not working, I bought the part and still need to install it.

6. scratches: bought a paint pen and it works great. not so great on deeper scratches.

7. driver's side headlight washer not retracting properly. still need to work on that.

8. can't wait to buy the smart-top.
