Hi guys I'm JP from Jacksonville FL. If you live around here I drive the sun burst yellow 2001 slk 230 lowered using eibach pro kit on 18 inch mandrus manheim wheels, yes its the same car on their website. I was their guineapig to see if it would fit on the r170. Since then the car has had minor upgrades and I am now trying to correct the rear and front camber by after market parts since tires are not cheap.

I've had my car now for over 6 years. Purchased from a retired military man who kept it in decent shape. I turned into a large project and is almost completed. I have used various posts from here and others to bring this car back to life. She still has more work to be done due to age but mechanically never had any problems with her. This site has been a great tool to fixing all the odds and ends of the car.

Sorry to have such a late post for being an old new member.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

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, 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 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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

I think Jeff aka jbanks15 is going garage door knocking scaring up all the SLK Natives in Fla. He carries with him a SLK Bible with the 10 SLK Commandments! The 1st commandment of course is thou shalt join SLK World!, Just kidding we all love Jeff!

Thanks guys for all the warm welcomes!! feels good. Too bad no one is near me in jax to help tackle the dreaded hydraulic ram rebuild id love to get some help on that haha.. The stealership made me replace 1 at a time!!!! I'm on the last one and they want me to do it again !!! What I didn't know was they could have fixed this all at 1 time instead of charging me 1k every time for each hydraulic ram. :( Sorry needed to vent.. this car is a never ending project.
