Just bought a 2000 SLK230 Pre facelift.
Decided with the driving I.m doing lately I.m sick of driving 4wd and work vehicles. Time to buy something that might be fun. Was looking at C200's but I already have a run around Jeep and I like small cars. started looking at 2 door coupes and realized I only need to seats and came across slk230's. Wasn't looking for a convertible but these are best of both worlds. Had to drive it 1300 klm's home and spent a couple of hours with the roof down. Kinda reminded me of when I use to ride GSXR's every where when I was young. Anyway hope to get help with repairs and some mods and hopefully help some others out. ( Auto electrician by trade and a few years of mechanical, electrical and hydraulics in the forklift industry). So G'day from Australia.

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

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 or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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 or use the 'quote' button so we know who you are asking or replying to or referencing.
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.
FREE!! 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.

Thanks folks.

Just rang the original dealer in Sydney to Get the radio security code. Gave them the VIN# and he told me over the phone, Pretty happy with that. Not in a hurry to change the radio just yet. Guess I'll have to remember how to burn a CD again, need to check if it plays mp3 format??
