I recently bought my first SLK. I had been watching Craigslist for several years watching for a deal I couldn't pass up. I guess fate brought me to this one. I was actually looking for a car for my daughter. It was a few minutes after midnight and I was about to go to bed. i decided to hit refresh one more time. There it was. posted 11 minutes ago. They were asking for $900 for a running 99 SLK. I responded to the ad and I managed to be the first one to his house (He had over 150 texts since he posted). His phone was going off the whole time I was checking it out.
I could tell it had been in a minor accident. Looked like the fender and front bumper was replaced by the owner. Not very well done. He said the top didn't work because of the cylinders.
Since then I've discovered there are wiring issues in the area of the damage so that's what I am starting with on the forum. i can't get it registered until I can fix the wiring for inspection. No wires to horn or left front sidemarker and a small bundle of wires cut off hanging in the fender well.
Wish me luck. Looking forward to finding the info I need here on the forum!

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

First please update your vehicle (model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) 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’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.




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.
