Proud new owner of SLK in the UK

Hi guys, my name is Pedro, and today i bought my new SLK.

She is a 2007 - 350 v6, edition 10 (amazing alloys imo).

It have 65k miles and have a very nice look for the age.

Probably will be around with hundreds of questions, for the moment will lurk the forums for a while

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, 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 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.

No problem, You are quite welcome to what little knowledge I have. "i860" is the guy from Swanage (His name is Ross) He knows quite a lot about the SLK, and I'm sure he'd love to have a mini-meet and a cup of coffee some time....
PS: We went to Mickey D's for a coffee and a good car chat the other week at Poole...

Hey Wheel thats amazing, looking forward to join you guys and shoot several rounds of questions.

I have one that is urgent, as my car says it needs servicing, where do you guys take yours? Mercedes Poole is OK? maybe an specialist? It is a A service if that matters...

Well, since I've had the car (Even though it came with full service history) I now do as much as possible myself (Like Ross, i860)
Reason: MB prices are extortionate, workmanship is not satisfactory at times (Read what's happened on the Forum) and doing it myself, makes sure the work is done properly. "I also keep all receipts as proof of workmanship"
Ross (i860) knows very trustworthy local garages that can help you if you do not want to tackle jobs yourself, at non MB prices. PM him and tell him you've had a chat with me (Terence)....
PS: Ross knows a garage that can even change your Transmission Fluid and Back Axle Fluid, along with engine oil, at sensible prices.
This is where to buy the oil and filters:MOTO-OIL.co.uk We are Moto-Oil.co.uk, a specia - Moto-Oil Dorset and UK
This is the garage that can do it for you:Mercedes servicing Poole, Porsche repairs Dorset, Jeep gearbox repairs, Audi service Poole, Chrysler gearbox repairs Bournemouth, Volkswagen servicing Bournemouth, VW service Poole, Porsche servicing Poole, Smart service Bournemouth

Let me know how you get on?
