    Dipstick for SLK 200 engine

    I noticed that my SLK engine doesn't have a dipstick and on checking with MB they state that it is a service tool only and that they don't provide technical information to customers. Hmmmm! I plan to do an oil change myself and in my view, a dipstick is essential to check oil level when...

    Could it be Big Ends?

    Car was in MB main dealer for four days this week. They started her each morning and late afternoon. Two service technicians had listened to it but no oil pressure check was done. The service manager subsequently said that my car engine is ok and that the big end type rattle noise is totally...

    Could it be Big Ends?

    Thanks for all your comments and yes Lewyboy, you could be absolutely correct about me being in new owner paranoia syndrome. But knowing my luck, if I did nothing now and it got out of warranty, I'd most likely end up having a major engine problem. So no harm checking it out to be safe. Also, by...

    New SLK 200 Owner

    Hi Clueless, Below is the Ebay link to my towbar sale. Please note that the advert is intentionaly brief as the original seller who wrongly stated it was for an SLK asked me to relist on a buy-it-now which is the original purchase price plus courier charge. This is his way of a refund. However...

    Could it be Big Ends?

    Bought my 54 plate SLK 200 21k miles four weeks ago and am very pleased with it but for one concern I now have. On a morning cold start, I've began to notice a 2-3 second low level rumble noise from the engine which then disappears, I guess due to the oil pressure building up. If the car is...

    Thanks for the comments all. You'll not be surprised to know that fitting a towbar to my SLK is now pure history and an ill informed daft idea.....

    New SLK 200 Owner

    Towbar Update on the towbar debacle. Turns out the Ebay seller has misinformed me as the towbar is for an E class Mercedes. That explains why the thing looked so damn huge. Needless to say, I'm pursuing a refund. Roy

    Formula One the jury's out.

    Good on Brawn and co. Great to see innovation and creativity 'within' the clearly inadequately defined rules. If the rules were clear, there wouldn't be a hearing now. F1 is meant to be the pinnacle of motorsport, surely not a body which suppresses design creativity and innovation to save on...

    New SLK 200 Owner

    I hope to meet up with a few club members at PCS GTG on Saturday 16th May in Portsmouth. I popped in there the other day and met with Oli who owns the business, nice chap and a good set up. He says the food will be good so looking forward to that. One question I do have, was there ever a...

    Selling A Used Car - Some Enlightenment Please

    I disagree with the earlier comment 'its cobblers' to say its a buyers market. Maybe its buisier at the lower price end of the market, but its ******** to say its bouyant thro the mid to upper end of the market. Just an opinion !

    SL or SLK ???

    SLK Definately SLK. 30mg on ave and great fun car. Who cares about the boot space, golf trolley and shopping fits well enough. More than sufficient room for a comfortable drive either short or long distance. Newer models have a real classy look and style. SLs are also a gorgeous car. The...

    Selling A Used Car - Some Enlightenment Please

    It is a strong buyers marker at present. You make your best deals on what you buy, not sell - unless lucky. I agree with Greg's comments about advert content. Doing this well is essential. Clearly state everything positively about it ie stating all extras, condition, history, service, repairs...

    GTG at PCS 16th of May 2009

    Excuse my ''new forum member'' ignorance but what is GTG and is there a description of what is happening during that day. I'm fairly local to Portsmouth and being a new Mercedes owner would like to meet up with a few of you folks. Maybe get my recent purchase checked out!!!!
