I have a 2005 SLK350 that I have owned since 9 December 2005. It has 149,000 miles and still going. Only a few minor problems in the 10 years with the exception of a fairly expensive compressor and control replacement this summer.
I do the routine stuff myself but have never had to change the coolant or tranny fluid. The navigation screen is gone but the radio still plays except you have to use the scan as the other buttons have quit. The AMG front has been replaced once, repaired twice and has the normal scratches and cracks. I whacked a traffic cone a few days ago and now have on order the right mirror turn signal.
It's amazing but I still get a lot of comments on the car, even though it is starting to show its age. It seems the design, which was kinda radical when new, has become "cool".

I appreciate all the good stuff found on the forum. Looking forward to being a member.

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.

Hi Bob, and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)

As Jeff has already mentioned above, it would be great if you could add your location and car details into your forum profile, please (instructions included in Jeff's post above). Thanks! :tu:
