    Throttle delay on SLK320 (R170)

    Hi, I've recently experienced a problem with the throttle response on my 2001. I've owned the car a couple of months, it's a low mileage (25k) FSH model, and the other day an hour or so into a drive I noticed a delay when pressing the accelerator. It lasted a second or so before there was any...

    SLK320 Manual Clutch

    Hi. I've got an SLK320 manual (2001) and the other day a broken bracket and a 6" spring dropped into the footwell. I'm told that it's a device to reduce the pressure on the clutch and isn't critical - the clutch will just be a bit heavier. Is this true? I'm inclined to leave it off if I can...

    Hi all, I have chance of a car (privately from a friend of a friend) with elec seats, xenons, bose in blue/black 2 owners from new but asking £13K. I'm thinking that £13K is too strong and that £11K would be about right?? Any views from you folks here would be most appreciated. TIA 99
