Back in an SLK!!

Hi all,

I've now owned my SLK350 since Dec of last year so thought it was about time to introduce myself!
I owned a 230K about 2000-ish, had the car for 3 years and it was great, sold it because at the time we had 2 dogs and needed the extra room and we went (me and the Mrs) down to 1 car.
I really missed the build, great performance and of course the roof.
I had a couple of Saab's and also a 996 911, but I've found myself back in an SLK and love it! Its quicker to 60 than the 911 and so much more refined, there are lots of toys on it that Ive not even bothered with as yet such as the DVD player and phone interface.
Its a 04 and is just coming upto 20,000, the '24 days to service' flashed up the other day and its an 'E' service so need to get that sorted soon, Any good dealers Uxbridge way?
All the best Pembers

Hey Pembers!

Hi from London, congrats on the car, i work over in Southall and have lived in Uxbridge too!

Now living over in east London but still use MB Heathrow, their based in Cowley so not too far,

I have used them for my slk and A class and C class too, very competitive against other MB dealers as they are a service center, give em a try!

Hi All, thanks for the very warm welcome!

Thanks for the info on Heathrow, I was hoping that they would be OK as I'm 5 miles away from them, Ill give them a bell on Mon for a quote,
All the best,
