New SLK280 owner and new member

611 Views 17 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  DAVIETHESCAFF

The new car is actually my wife's but I will be the master mechanic. We have a 2006 SLK280. Great shape but a few scuffs to fix. Needs new trunk pistons (ordered). VERY interested in iPhone integration and NTG1 upgrades.

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.
