Smile Hi SLK World!

Just wanted to say "Hi" to the community.
I've been visiting this forum for a few months now and I really love it!
I'm driving a black SLK200 since 2004 and I'm enjoying the car a lot.
As I'm a DIY, I've put in several mods to the car such as:
- an engine performance kit (stock 163 hp was a bit to slow for me )
- the front brakes have been replaced by a Movit 6-Pot system (awsome!!), the stock ones kept on failing and had to be replaced with every maintenance.
- replaced the stock suspension with a KW-Variant 3 system, this really improves the car's driving capabilities a lot!
- added the TV module to the comand DVD system
- installed a camera at the front of the car (I like to record my runnings on the track when I'm driving on the Nurburg Ring)
- got the LSD doors (this I added just for the fun of it, I hardly ever use them)
- and the latest (still work in progress) is a complete car computer system which is installed in the trunk where the spare tire resides.
It's hooked up to the OBD port of the car, so I can record my runs via the camera and add the info of the engine (ECU) to the movie
and monitor the car's variables.
It also works with Wi-Fi so I can upload music and stuff when the car is at home.
When the car is not at home, I use a 3G/HSDPA datacard to connect the car on the internet.

I think that's about it.
If anyone wants more details, no problemo!
greetings
Bram

PS: Is it possible to change my name from machiavelian to Bram ?
No idea why I used that old nick

A Warm Welcome From Kuwait and Welcome to the forum!
I hope you enjoy your stay at SLKWorld and really youve outdone yourself with those impressive modifications you have done to your SLK200 Kompressor.

Hey Vin,

Next time when I open her up, I'll take some pics and comment on them.
Should not be to long as I'm gonna install a second camera at the back and hook it up to the car pc and on the AUX2 port of the COMAND.
The installation was done with the support of SteveNL (http://www.mbenznl.com)
