You can do it the old way. Both methods remove same amount of oil on MBs.

Oil should be ok, dont rev engine for a few minutes.

Default SLK230 Oil Change - 4 minute DIY Video

I made a short and sweet diy video of the SLK230 oil and oil filter change for 1996-2004 (r170 generation)

Mercedes dealerships refer to an oil change as Service A and charge $200-$250 for it!! You can easily do your own oil and oil filter change on your Mercedes for $35-$40. Then inspect your fluid levels, look at your brakes, check your tire pressure, reset the maintenance counter and voila you saved $200 by doing your own "Service A" maintenance

hope this is helpful!

Congrats on the new purchase. I've included a link below to our site's DIY tech articles on the SLK. It'll show you a guide to changing your oil, as well as other DIY fixes that you may encounter down the line. Please let us know if we can help.
