No. Because there is only going to be more 171's.

Only going to be less 170's in the world.

Still hope they rejoin us.

We have not left...there are still at least a few of us around, myself, 412driver, Tslick, SLKman. I'm sure I'm missing a few, too. Don't write us off just yet.

That would be Andy I believe and he appears to be long gone. His last visit to the site was 08-26-2006.

His status is founding member, however only ever 4 posts.

Do like the look of his SLK though and has an impressive list of mods. Wouldn't mind those alloy's for me own.

Yea, the poor folks are still here, we must be off line more to WORK FOR A LIVIN, unlike you rich silverspooners. Only kiddin yall, the facts are, we have much less trouble from our cars and we sit by and read all the trouble you are having with your NEW MORE COMPLICATED HIGH DOLLAR CARS. Winky's back thanks yall

Even when the 170 crowd save enough to get a 171, we will keep our 170s.

Only makin fun, we are all one here, that is one of the draws to SLK World, we are all SLK fans. Love the jokes the good info and the friends. All of YOU...

LOL Yep we are here.


Most our issues have been posted and addressed so all we have to do is "search" to find our answers.

Maybe we R170 guys need to post more in our section instead of the general section??? LOL

I think Bazzle said that the r170 section in benzworld.org is still very active, so maybe they are there. idk. I do most of my surfing now by clicking on new post and I still see r170 members posting.

Well, you have years of information over there for the R170's.

I would love to see all those info links transferred over to here but kinda feel like that may be stepping on toes to do that?

Bazzle has consolidated many links into one thread over there. Maybe he can do the same over here.

Bazzle is da man!

How about it Bazzle?

Speaking of copper R170's. I saw one parked 2 weeks ago at Lake Forest and slipped an SLKWorld card on the wiper blade. Hope he/she joins. The license frame states: "In case of rapture, the car's yours."

It takes too much time.

I think there is nothing wrong with linking back, its done to more sites than just Benzworld.
Unfortunately I have to work for a living.
I have put some stickys and links in already. Its up to others to join in if the interest is there?

I do check this site daily, just dont always post

I check here almost every day.

I have made posts also on here but most of the talk is for the SLK55.

But that will all change when I can finally get my car in the shop to get that NOS kit installed.

Soon.....Soon.......Still waiting for them to get the current cars out of the shop so they can focus strictly on mine since this will be a "One of a kind" setup.
