Hi, my name is Pete Morse. I bought my wife an SLK 230 on Tuesday this week and I absolutely love it! It is a 2001 Auto (she can only drive autos!) in Silver with black leather interior. Apart from a couple of little rust spots which I understand are common on this model, it looks a stunner. I am a getting a private plate for it and would like to have an AMG style grille and update the headlights in time. So, bring on the sunshine now!

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

First please update your vehicle (year?: 2001) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
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 ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘personal garage’.




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 you should by her a skate board & a bike so she can learn how to drive & ride on those. But first you should drive "her" SLK until you buy one just for you, preferably a SLK 55! Teehee!

Man, these are awesome cars.. hope your wife and yourself will be very pleased.. if you have a standard black grill, how about taking it out and respraying silver? I did that and looks like the "limited edition" grill. Also check with the site moderators regards lube spec but maybe take ten mins and go to Halfords and buy some silicon lube/spray to give your roof mechanism a clean and lube, in case had never been done.. but in 18 months, aside from a wheel sensor failure last week, touch wood, mine has been awesome in 18 months.. with the awesome auto gearbox , cruise control and air condt, these cars have some great features.. The R170 is lovely to drive. I think that black leather on silver for the R170 is the very best combo!! Hope your will be a keeper ! Enjoy and welcome to the site.. Kevin
