Hi from the OC!

I just got my SLK 230 Kompressor, fixing it up a bit, and I love it!!

Southern California is a great place for a hard top convertible - seal out the freeway traffic on a commute, then soak up the "perpetual" sunshine on a pleasure cruise.

Looking to soak up some knowledge about this baby - what typical problems to watch out for, the inside scoop on cool mods, and get to know others who appreciate this german masterpiece.

Thanks for the opportunity!

Watch for messages and posts in the CA section from Durkatlon. He's usually the one organizing the events.

Hah, giving me a bit too much credit there. I only do the ones that center on San Diego County. Others (SantamonicaSLK32, Bleen, others) usually do the Los Angeles area. Speaking of which, I think Bleen has scouted a nice road near Castaic Lake, so hopefully we can do a run in that area in the near future.

Sounds great! I've never been up there before. Looks pretty scenic, with some exhilarating roads!

Is there a way to get on a list or group or something, to get notified when something is coming up?
