Hello all! I recently purchased my black on black 2008 350SLK six speed. I love the car as it is in near perfect condition and only 51,000 miles on it. Garage kept of course and not a scratch on it when I got it and I have enjoyed driving it very much. Look forward to many more years of enjoying the vehicle especially for summer driving when I can put the top down. Maryland weather right now is not to accommodating for a convertible. Only issue is how to get my iPhone to work with this car. I understand iPhone are not compatible with the car's phone system and I am wondering what I need to get the car to at least accept calls and allow me to talk hands free? Any ideas? Look forward to interacting with all of you!
