First Mercedes - a bit worried

Hi:

I just bought my first MB, a 2006 slk 280. It handles beautifully, is very pretty, and has great performance. I'm thrilled, but also a bit uneasy about some things.

I have received a warning message about the SRS. Is this serious? This happened when a very large person (300+ pounds) tried to sit in the passenger seat (not successfully). Any correlation?

Also, I am perplexed about iPod adapters. I have the standard (crummy) radio. Is it possible to replace the standard radio with something a little more modern (HDFM and ipod/iPhone capability)? Any suggestions? Is this about to cost big bucks?

Thanks,

Michael

hi michael,i to have my first mb and one thing i have found is the dealer service is top notch but the parts are way out of this world expensive.for instance,front air shocks sprung a leak...boom 1000.00 for a rebuild kit. drivers sun visor is floppy...380.00....any way what a great car ,just pricy to keep luxury maintaned.right now it's setting in my driveway stuck in park only 62000 miles on it
