Hello, We bought a 2006 SLK55 in August 2011 with 24000kms on the clock. My wife and I have since done another 30000km. Initially, there were a couple of problems fixed under warranty including leaking crank seal and cracked driver's seat frame which necessitated a new seat frame. Also the front bumper had paint peel suggesting that it had been resprayed previously. However, now the car is sorted and is driven most days to our place of employment as well occasional trips to country. We have children so they can only go in it one at a time which they regard as real treat...I have bought silver paddles to replace the change buttons on the steering wheel and will be using guidance from this very interesting and informative forum to fit them.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com, the elite Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Lakeland, Florida!

Here are just a few easy instructions to make your membership a fun and productive experience:

If you haven't done so already it's important to update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps other members answer your questions which are usually based on that information. It's easy, just simply click on "Usercp" at the top left of page on the Information Bar, your "CONTROL PANEL" will be on the left. This will allow you access to all your information.

The "Search" feature at the top right of the page is for searching the forum. Many questions have already been asked and answered by our knowledgeable members.

If you are having difficulty finding a solution, you can post your question in the appropriate discussion forum. By doing this, you should receive a quicker response, but please be patient as the forum is worldwide and members live in different time zones.

Private Message (pm) is a tool to communicate with other members privately for instructions or just chatting. In order to do this you must have at least 15 posts. It's easy to obtain the posts by clicking on the "New Members Introduce Yourself Here" section and just welcome the new members (like we welcomed you).

To post a picture, either start a new thread or reply to one, type what you want to say and click on the 'paper clip' just above, this will open a window to your left, click on 'browse', go to your pictures, and double click on the one you want to post, click on 'upload' and then 'submit' your post.

If you like a comment or want to thank another member for their post, there's a 'like' button to the right and just below is the 'thanks' button.

As a new member you can use the "New Posts" link at the top of the info bar. It's a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.

When you are ready to leave the forum just click on "Quick Links" and click 'mark forums read', this will clear your screen for when you log on again.

As a member you have the privilege to vote and/or enter our Ride of the Month competition, we welcome new SLKs to compete and new members to vote:

If you have any questions/comments please let us know and we will be happy to help you.

Thank you for joining our wonderful SLK family!
