HI i am looking to upgrade to an SLK R171.

My requirements are that its automatic and 4 cyld

I have some questions that i am finding difficult to research the answers.

1. there have been a number of variations released during the SLK R171 what build year / month were these variations released ?
2. Were the variations only cosmetic changes to the body of where there also changes internally re features and optional extras
3. When was SatNav ever a standard feature or is that always an option at time of purchase

My SLK 1999 has suffered terribly from dashboard paint peel, something i still cannot get my head around how such a stuff up could occur on a vehicle that had a $100,000 price tag way back in 1999.

Are there any known issues with the SLK R171 that one needs to keep an eye out for when buying one, I will be looking for one that has between 45,000km - 65,000km.

Any words of wisdom regarding the above would be appreciated

some kind souls will respond

the 05 had oil consumption issues, again a search will show those

and going forward, you should post your questions in the appropriate section, ie.,:

post r170 questions usually in the r170 general discussion forum
post r171 questions in the r171 general discussion
post australia question in this section, but unless it is about a repair shop or where to buy something locally, you might want to post in one of the above sections

Again, Welcome to our forum!
