Got rid of my Bimmer for this Benz!

Good morning, everyone.

A little about me: I am a professional concert pianist (You can listen to my music on Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, Amazon, etc. by searching 'Kolt Supa'), music producer, and in law enforcement. Love cars, always have, always will....

I must say, I am very content on discovering this forum site of SLK owners. I was raised in Miami, so naturally I have a love for convertibles. I own a 1997 BMW Z3 that was ALOT of fun to drive, a 1979 Monte Carlo lowrider (just like the one from the movie, 'Training Day') and a 2005 BMW X5 that I purchased for my wife.

I was pretty happy with my vehicles until I set eyes on this beautiful, 2002 black in color SLK 320. Just so happened, she was on sale. Told the wife and she loved the idea of the convertible upgrade with one catch...I would have to sell my BMW Z3...

Within a week the Z3 was gone and cash in hand. So, there is my happily ever after SLK story...oh, and I immediately went to work on the SLK and installed new headlights (Hated the stock ones), tail lights and decals to it. Planning on keeping the interior stock...for now.

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

Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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, 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.
  • 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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
  • Want to share your real name with us (or check for someone else’s), then post it here: A 'Who's Who' in SLKWorld.com
  • Finally, the Picture of the Day section is guaranteed to have something to make you smile each weekday morning!

Thank you
Dave

Sure looks like it has a great finish on it, very nice. How about a pic of that Monte?
