Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

I love the colour of your car, as you'll see from my comments in the thread that Trev5 shared above... would love the chance to see it in person at one of the UK Meets sometime! :tu:

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

As for you question about the exhaust, QuickSilver is certainly one possibility (although I've never heard one in person), but there are lower cost options for getting sound improvements...

Check out this thread:
http://www.slkworld.com/amgs/159074-slk55-2005-uk-x-pipe-2nd-cat-delete-must-do.html

I have an x-pipe and second cat delete (see from post 68 in the above thread, and/or links in my signature), and I think it gets the balance just right... Roar when you're on the throttle, and no drone when cruising at motorway speeds. As you'll see from that thread, many others have done similar too.

You just need to find an exhaust shop that's happy to do the custom work (or add in something like the Magnaflow x-pipe)... at a place that several of us have used in the Midlands now the total cost is around £250. :tu:

Hi, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

I did a secondary cat and resonator box delete, and fitted an x-pipe. Love it. :smile:
