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.

Greetings from Tennessee !

Just do your homework, get a service history, and have the time of your life driving it. If you're concerned about the repair bills then get a warranty to cover any major uh-ohs.

Hi and welcome from North Wales UK.
I had my 2005 slk 350 for 1 month now and love it. had to travel to stoke to pick it up...just keep looking on the online autotrader and select your options, I waited over 6 weeks to find the car I wanted. I know its only been a month but I have found no problems with the car except having to change a fuse to get the cigar lighter working to be able to charge my phone. Hope you find your perfect car soon.
