Hi All

My wife purchased a 2012 SLK200 AMG today.

She left it to me to do the test drive and I was mildly surprised at how nimble it is. The last modern two seater I had was a Honda S2000. Must admit the SLK felt solid and well put together.

Put it into Sport and it pushed along nicely, so that's the last time I will get to drive it until it needs an MOT or some work on it.

SO onto the work side of it, a few niggles to sort which I will be scouring the forum's for.

1. It has a warning on start up about Active Bonnet Malfuntion.
2. Air Scarf lights come on for five seconds then go off.
3. trim piece on the outer windscreen pillar is not clipped in properly.

I think looking on the forum its classed as a R172

Oh I need to find a manual pack and a sat nav module as well.

So any help on the above would be appreciated.

Cheers Shaun

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.
