My wife recently purchased a used (2001) SLK 230. She is quite enjoying it,
as am I, although I seem to be the designated mechanical specialist, based
on chromosonal content alone.
In reading the manual, I noticed that the "Canadian" version of this car
features headlights that come on with the engine automatically, whereas the
"American" version requires manual switching for the lights.
So I'm curious what it is that makes my SLK "American" in this way, and if
it can be naturalized for Canadian citizenship to provide this feature.
Thanks for your help. I'll check the manual again, but I'm pretty sure
there was no "user" provision for doing this...keep in mind that this is a
2001 SLK230, and I wouldn't put it past MB to have made this an "option" on
the 320, as well as to have made it an option on later (or even earlier, for
that matter) model years.
For illustration, (either of the particulars of my car or of my general
ignorance) I am totally unaware of to what "MENUS" and "MAIN DISPLAY" might
be referring in this context. Is there really a menu-driven display for
setting preferences on *this* car??

Does the Benz have a little light sensor that tells it when to turn on, or
does it turn on no matter how bright it is? If there is a light sensor, how
about buying a AAA battery maglite and lighting up the light sensor for
those special occasions?
