I bought a 2001 SLK 320 about two years ago with 100,000 miles on it. I use this site a lot for DIY stuff. I have a 1965 Buick Skylark that I've done a frame-off restoration on but the Mercedes has electrical and technical specifics that are past my knowledge level.

So far the only customization I've done is a new CD receiver with a USB port and Bluetooth capability, rebuilt brake calipers that I painted purple with G2 caliper paint, and stripped off all the latex paint from the interior console panels.

Maintenance stuff so far has been an oil change, coolant flush, brake fluid flush (with the caliper rebuild), serpentine replacement, and I had to clean-up the PSE pump because my interior lights wouldn't go out. I still have a bunch of maintenance stuff to do but I plan on doing some engine modding stuff that might get interesting. I'll post as I go.

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.
