Firstly thankyou for letting me become a member. I collected my SLK on friday in London and had a lovely drive back to Northern Ireland. This car replaces a 330 ci and my first impressions are its a great car, economical considering the engine size and fun to drive.
Have a few things that i need to address with it, it is a low mikeage one lady owner that kerbed the wheels so they are currently with Mercedes in Belfast getting refurbished, next on my to do list is to source a telephone and ipod type device that would enable the use of the steering wheel controls, any ideas as to what is good? My 09 C220 cdi has bluetooth built in but the ipod kit was thrown in by dealer as a sweetener when i bought it, it has a lead in glove box and i am cool with that set up, not interested in a parrot kit, have one of them in my daughters car and think its poor tbh. Nearly forgot, the phone is iPhone 6 in case that makes a difference.
Anyway ladies and gents once again thank you and your ideas would be welcomed.
