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

Not much you can do with a 230 to 'modify' it :D

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.

Welcome from North Carolina! You can mod most of them up for sure. If you lean toward the R170 body style, it is probably more cost effective to get an Slk32 AMG? Factory speed tha can still be modified! If you like the style of the R171 or R172 it may still be more cost effective to get the Slk55 AMG. It too can be modded up!

Welcome from Gloucester UK
I too had a 325i (1987) then a Z3 followed by another 325i and now have an X3 but as much as I love the BMWs I found the SLK to be addictive. I was using an Impreza WRX (2007) as my daily car for the last 6 1/2 years and only bought the SLK for a bit of summer fun but found it so addictive that I now use it as my daily driver (X3 as the family car) and sold the Impreza. (although still have a classic Impreza in the garage as an ongoing restoration project)
Drive an SLK and see what you think.....Try a bigger engined (v6 / v8) model and it will embarrass a lot of modern performance cars !!!

Hey welcome aboard, I recently purchased a Merc myself. I purchased a ‘01 SLK 320 which needed a little tlc. My intentions are to keep it pretty much stock and with a little tlc and some elbow grease it is looking mighty fine. The is a lot of little things you can do with these slk’s eye catching, not to mention fun to drive.
