Hello from Waterlooville

Hello everyone.
Bought myself a shiny silver SLK 230 last week, I have never owned a Mercedes before and it's crammed in my garage with my Kia and my motorcycle. So far I'm loving it.

This is all very exciting and I've never been a member of a forum before either so (so I'm probably doing it all wrong) I'm looking forward to learning more about how to look after and get the most from this delightful machine.

I have a few rust issues to sort out around the wheel arches and I'm looking forward to getting started on those, in the meantime, where the rubberised finish on the interior trim and dashboard has rubbed away I have been able to mix up some artist's acrylic paint (painting is one of my hobbies) and achieve the appropriate shade of grey to retouch the worn away areas. Seems to work pretty well but I guess only time will tell me how durable it is but even if it wears off again at least I know I have a quick fix for the problem.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, 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, 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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a datacard (options on your car) free.
