Thinking of buying or have bought an SLK? Then The SLK Guide is a must-have book. The SLK Guide will talk you through the four main types of Mercedes-Benz SLK: the 170, 171, 172 and the current SLC 173. It also shows you the improvements in the mid-term facelifts. It explains the differences between the various models, from the 200 normally aspirated 170 to the fire-breathing SLK55 AMG.
It includes comments and view of owners of their own experiences. There are the views of mechanics and sales staff.
It will tell you of the known issues, what to look out for, where to buy and which one will be perfect for you. Or rather, which ones will be.
The book comes in two parts: the first a description of the cars and their strengths and weaknesses; the second technical advice and data.
It is viewable on PCs, laptops, pads and readers, is picture led, with well over 160 high quality illustrations showing you all the details you need to know.
This is the only SLK Owners’ and Buyers’ Guide available covering all the models.
From the intro to the book:
“The SLK is a Mercedes-Benz success story. It fills a market niche that no other premium sports car approaches.
“There is a massive range, from cruisers to bruisers, all with that wonderful roof which changes the car from a roadster to coupe in seconds. There are over 60,000 of all types on the British roads. If you want to know which one is for you then you need The SLK Guide. If you have one, then you need The SLK Guide as well.”
The fourth edition, available from late summer, introduces the SLC and will be available from late summer 2016. If you buy now you will receive edition three and then edition four when published. the Guide includes an introduction to servicing, an explanation of tuning via ECU modification and, in response to requests from readers, a list of P-Codes.

A superb book! I have just received my second SLK, a 172 Turbo, and am finding out aspects of these cars I didn’t know. I recommend downloading the expanded version, a fun book to read by any SLK fan. James Harrison – 5.0 Stars

Quite simply the best SLK book on the market. Two tips read in this book would have saved me hundreds over the seven years I have owned an SLK. Craig Hunter – 5.0 Stars
Awesome guide for the SLK Mercedes!
Let me start by saying that I own a 98 SLK Mercedes. I have read just about anything that I could find about my car. This guide is one of the best that I have come across. Just about anything you would want to know about one is included in this book. From it’s lineage to specs to reviews, variations in model years, it’s all in there. I found it to be highly informative and entertaining as an owner of an SLK. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that owns an SLK or is thinking about buying one. Bryant – 5.0 stars

Great read on Mercedes-Benz SLKs
I already own a SLK but still found this book interesting and most informative. It would not have changed my mind whether to purchase a SLK, but it may have influenced which model and motor I selected. Well done! Chris Leitch – 5.0 Stars
