Hey guys I am parting out a 1998 SLK 230. However, I do not have the front end but I pretty much have everything else. I still have the convertible top, trunk, fenders, and much more. Just message me for any parts you may want and I will get back to you asap.

SLK Parts

Yes I do have the coffee cup holder, and what color did you want the headliner to be? It might be silver but I will have to go to the shop and check it out to make sure.

Hi Leo . . . I have a 2000 SLK 230 and need 3 lens, the right rear tail lens (assembly?), the right front fog lamp lens, and the right front directional signal lens (if it is separate from the headlamp lens?) . . . if you have any of these parts would they fit my 2000? . . . and I am in California, so shipping expense is something to consider. Thanks.

Hi, sorry to hear a part-out is necessary. When you get to stripping the back-end I wonder if you can help me with information on the differential (ring-gear) gear ratio in your car please?

I have the manual gearbox version of the R170 230, sadly with a worryingly noisy differential so need to find a replacement diff. I live in Europe or could be looking to buy your differential but distance and a dearth of information on the differing (or perhaps uniform) gear ratios in the R170 cars (200 & 230 with auto and/or manual boxes) prevents me from knowing what part-outs to look at. Can you help me with your ratio, please?

I hear that each differential MAY have its ratio stamped on the case …….. it would also help me if you could confirm that!

Thanks in anticipation

Thanks very much Leo - but do you know whether that "rule" applies to all R170's? If my ratio is 3.27, as I suspect, is there no autoboxed cars using 3.27 diff gearing? Further I'm hoping someone might know whether the 200 manual-boxed Kompressors also used a 3.27 rear end? All info much appreciated.

Sorry to hear about the part out...do you have the center console bezel? And what color/type is it? light wood, carbon fiber, etc? This is the area where AC controls, radio, and bottom controls are. Also the panel around the shifter.
