Old Member!

Hi,

I have been a member for several years but just not got around to posting an intro until now.
I have a 1997 SLK R170 (pre facelift) 230. Very clean and original - even down to a rather out of date Becker Sat Nav.
I have just finished a rebuild of the rear end with new wheel bearings and suspension with the exception of keeping the original springs a shocks which are still in great condition.

My attention is now turning to the front end. Lower ball joints and wheel bearings first and then just see what else needs doing along the way.

The car has covered 138K miles and for UK car is very rust free.

Great forum guys. Thanks for the inspiration and help.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!


Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and for posting an intro!

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there!

There's a summary post that I maintain for all UK meets here, and links to examples and pictures from this year's past meets are available here.

Finally, we also recently started plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Thanks
