Hello From 1st Time Mercedes Owner
My name's Eddie. I'm a musician from the UK and I just bought a R171 SLK 280 (May 2008). It was a bit of an impulse purchase as I only went out to have a look at one on a dealer's forecourt! 45mins later, sold!
First job is upgrading to NGT 2.5 (sounds what I know what I'm talking about, but only after 2 solid weeks of trying to understand Mercedes' minefield of confusing variations of tech specs!).
Also trying to find a smoker pack to replace the lower tray - how hard can that be I wonder after, again, searching for ages. I though they would be easy to find as everyone else in the world is a non smoker these days and swapping them out.
Oh yeh ... the seats!!!! Not the most comfy I must say, but actually getting used to them a bit. Time will tell. Had I known the power seats had more adjustment I may have waited for another car to come along .... actually no I wouldnt, I love this machine and wanted one for years. It was never going to sit on that forecourt long.
All in all very happy to sitting in a MB convertible sports and hoping to make full use of this forum.
