Hi all. Would like to say hi to you all. I have just become an owner of an 2008 350 SLK. I'm looking forward to some interaction with you guys.
Picking the car up this week and already want to upgrade the satnav/radio. I would like to find a full touch screen with dab wifi bluetooth etc while maintaining steering wheel functionality if possible? Any suggestions?

My last two cars where 330i and 335i (tunned).

Looking forward to replies cheers kevin

Welcome from Wirral, England.


========================================================

First please update your location and vehicle
(Put Looking!)(year?: 1996-2017, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55)
in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
This takes about 30 seconds to do.


Follow exactly to update:
‘Usercp’ at the top of page,
then ‘edit your details’ on the left side,
‘additional information’ near the bottom,
edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.
Info in your garage does not update your profile.

The reason that we ask you to update vehicle/location details
is to save repeating the same information every time that you ask a question.

Also, this site is truly worldwide. That can matter when you ask for help and information.
Are you looking for a bonnet, or a hood, a boot, or a trunk? Makes a difference.
Driving on the left, or the right?

========================================================

Entry is normally open from the 1st to the 15th of every month. You simply post a reply with 3 photos.

You will never need to ask about part numbers again.



Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
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 or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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 post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the
info bar 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.
