    SLK230K R170 Vivanite

    Looks OK - Vivanite is a bit of a Marmite colour, I personally quite like it. The SLK looks in pretty reasonable nick and only 1 owner. I'd be surprised if there isn't some tin worm in the equation, but it seems like a lot of car for the money! 2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK230 Kompressor - One...

    Surprised at how nice an SLK230k is

    I bought a 2003, 56k mile SLK230 yesterday for my partner's birthday, which she loves. Driving it with her yesterday I was pleasantly surprised at what a well built, solid little thing it is. I know they have their rust issues (this one has been sorted so is good in that respect) but I'm really...

    98 SLK230K Coolant fan not working.

    I'm reviving this car and working through it's surprisingly few problems. In trying to get the A/C working Carsoft threw up a coolant fan error which backed up my suspicions that it wasn't working with the temperature gauge getting highish a few times and the coolant light flickering. I've...

    Quote on Projector Headlamps

    Fuel smell on a SLK230K 1998

    My SLK230 1998 model smells of petrol fumes when I use the vehicle or switch of the engine after parking the vehicle in my garage Removing the petrol cap releases the fuel system of pressure but does not cure the problem. My local mechanic states he cannot find any problems with the vehicle...

    SLK230k down on power

    Hi all, I have recently bought a 1998 SLK230 auto, and it seems to be down in power. It is slow to pull away and has developed a shudder when driving. I'm not sure the kompressor is kicking in either, it takes a while to gt up to speed and doesnt really go fast at all. I can hear some kind of...
