Whats the earliest year that the SLK had rain sensing wipers? I know my 2005 C240 has them and would love to get them in my SLK.

Is there any particular package or thing to look for, as it can be hard when looking at used SLKs online to determine features that may not be obvious to the dealer.

If you have the sensor on your windscreen (next to the light sensor behind the rear view mirror), you can get a tame dealer to enable it using stardiag.

How often do you see rain, Mo???:biglaugh::biglaugh: (then, thinking about it, so infrequently, you've forgotten where the wiper switch is:)).
In my dreams very often, last time it rained last month...winter is nearly here so it will rain 2-3 times a week...ohh I hardly drive the car but when I am in the rain its a good feature. Yes, I used it....well not as much as I would like to...:biglaugh: good point woolly!

For US spec vehicles it is part of Premium 1 package.

The other way to find out is to post the VIN or PM VIN to UK-C200/members with Startek info privileges and they'll post the data card, which will show the different options in the vehicle as it left the factory.

My 2005 had and 2006 has rain sensing wipers. For living in South Florida, I consider them second only to Air Conditioning as a required option. I think they should be standard on all cars as a safety option.
