SoCal slk230 owner & loving it

Hello, I am a proud owner of a '99 SLK 230 M/T (and soon to be owner of a '02 slk32 AMG )for almost a year now and always have been dreaming of owning 1. I came across this website 2 years ago by randomly searching google for some specs on these cars. 2 long time members of this forum really inspired me to pursue my dream car and they are sightless and sikslk. I hope I can gain as much knowledge as the rest of you and hopefully a life long supporter of this site.

And now for my 1st dilemma, I came across the infamous sprint booster & unfortunately most of the topics regarding that are all the way from '06. I am hoping to acquire 1 but I do not trust ebay. Also, if anybody has an idea where I can get 1 for a manual transmission for a '99 slk230, I would appreciate it. It seems that its hard to get a source for the manual and also pre-2000 r170 platform. Thank you all in advance.

EDIT: Sorry for violating a forum rule & also I think I was looking at the wrong search field, accidentally browsed a google bar.

Welcome to benzworld

I'm sure some guys over in the R170 part of the forum would be able to lend you a hand. Good luck and post some pictures of your car when you get a chance.
