Hi to all
What a great website to have access to when you own one of these great little cars
I am 67 years old and this is my first experience in a sporty 2 seater It must be an old man thing to own one EH!!
Here in NewZealand we have numerous car clubs which I am about to join one in my hometown Whangarei Northland
My SLK230 supercharged is a 1998 which i purchased after it had had a frontal accident
I have replaced the front RH fender and rebuilt the bumper The steering was slightly pulling to right so sorted that with a wheel alignment
The car has AMG 17in wheels 245 tyres on the rear and 215 on the front which gives great grip and handling
I need to recoat the centre console as it has the usual peeling on it
I have replaced seals in top roof actuator and replaced the headlining

What a great little car it is now

I look forward to using this site and its huge access to info and like minded members

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!


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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a datacard (options on your car) free.

Welcome from NY. Had the same dash issues with my old 230 as well. Easy fix, order the paint from Viponds, clean dash extremely well with alcohol, and brush on a few light coats. Works great
