Thumbs up Hello from East Yorkshire, England

Hi there guys, just bought our first SLK yesterday, hoping for delivery early next week. Prior to yesterday I had admired - but never driven an SLK. I've had C-Class, S-Class, and also have a BMW 520d-se, but the SLK blew me away.

Its a 2005 SLK200, from a main dealer in west yorkshire, and we cant wait for it to arrive, its just a shame we are coming to the end of the nice weather over here! The car is in incredible condition for a 9yo motor, the bodywork is mint and the wheels have never been near a kerb by the looks of it!

We are at "that age" where we dont need 2 family cars any more (1 of our kids has just started driving herself) so we thought we would treat ourselves to a "fun" car, although my wife will be commuting in it most days.

This seems like a friendly place, and there appears to be quite a few people in our neck of the woods, but hello to SLK owners all over the world.

(sorry for rambling on!)

Hi and welcome from the UK Midlands!

I got my first SLK last week, so I still remember the sleepless nights between buying and taking delivery... it's all worth it the first time you put the roof down and drive it though!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from NE England!

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.

In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member will address your question.

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.

Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Thank you,

Hi t8yman, a warm welcome from Southern Arizona. Congratulations on your new ride. This is a good time to exercise your smile muscles as this car has a very high smiles to miles ratio. Enjoy the people, the forum, and top down cruisin'.

Sounds good Pete, we actually live in Brough now, although I work on Hedon Road. Sunday mornings are doable during the summer, but I'm afraid my lads' football commitments involve our sunday mornings ferrying him around the local area!

Cheers
