Try search on this forum, here is one thread

coolant leak

Check for coolant smell in the cabin floor, check for possible white streaks below hoses, water pump, etc. These should be obvious places. Intake manifold leak is a bit harder to find and nastier, too. Any white smoke from the exhaust? How quickly does the coolant disappear?

Drove about 20 miles today a couple of runs locally,no fast roads.Tonight I added half a litre-16fl oz ,a quart??
My SA called-said not to worry-as the car is almost 4 years old it will use more oil and water .....I have NEVER seen the water light on in 10 years of owning SLKs.
Time for a new dealer??

Apparently it should be half full,which it was,but I brimmed it! Will recheck daily.

If the coolant leak inside th engine from the intercooler, your plugs should show sign of corrosion. Pull it and check it out. C32 and E55 has these same problems.
