Hello and thank you for the welcome message. My name is Angela and I am the proud owner of a 2006 slk 280 manual tranny.

I purchased her in '08 and she had 19K. Today she is just shy of 100K. She needs a little love and care, (like all vintage ladies do:) but she is a fun drive.

Hoping to get advice here on general maintenance things. Bulb replacement, radio upgrade, ect. Did change out the brake pads awhile ago and was amazed at how easy it was. Literally took 10 minutes once the tire was off.

Anyway, thanks for the space and I will be cruising these pages for your knowledge.

Angela and her Sexy Little Kar

Hi Angela, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro! :)

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
  • SmartTop: What is this SmartTOP all the members keep talking about?
  • Shorty antenna
  • LED license plate bulbs and parking lights
  • Chrome/stealth indicator bulbs (still flash orange, but removes the ‘fried egg’ look from your headlight housings)
  • OEM windscreen or Lighted/etched windscreen
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

If you're free 3pm tomorrow give serious consideration to the Oktoberfest meet.

50+ SLKs should be fun.

If you're not free tomorrow, cancel your plans and head to the Oktoberfest.
