Hi Guys , just a quick post to introduce myself. My name is Shaun and I have just purchased R171 SLK55 2005. This is the first AMG I have had, but currently have a BMW Z4 3.0 ( currently waiting to be sold) and a Range Rover Sport Cosworth as the daily hack. I live Wirral area just outside Liverpool and have been looking through the website for lots of hints and tips.

The car I bought was off a forum member Kam, who is a great guy who I got on well with as he is a very similar Petrolhead. it is a bit of piece of mind when you know who has had the car previous. First job is to get the exhaust mod done that I know Kam was very close to doing. I have Cybrand (formerly Peco Exhausts) specialist near me so going to run it down to them to see what they can do....... Just need to have some fun in it now!!

Hi Shaun, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us (and thanks to @kammy for recommending us)! :)

You really do need to do the x-pipe and secondary cat delete... check out the links in my sig for a little more info... >:D

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:

Don’t forget to lube those seals:

Download your car’s brochure:

Other 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 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 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.

55 AMG Power Package.....R171.

I have had mine,5 years this Christmas.......sends a tingle up the spine, every time I insert the ignition key.
In anticipation of the power, braking and handling of this sexy looking Roadster.
The 7 speed Triptronic Transmission is excellent in all aspects of power delivery........The Pointed Formula 1frontal design is Sculptured art by MB....and other models try to design similar, but are no match for the R171.
:laugh:

Hi and Welcome from Nottingham, never met Kammy but did bump into him on the forum a few times and he seemed like a good guy, was considering meeting me and Dave in Wales last May if I recall but didn't make it in the end. Enjoy the new car and the smiles only get bigger after exhaust mods! :wink:
