Hello! My name is Hollie and I'm from Southwest Michigan. Just bought a 2009 SLK 55 2 weeks ago. Looking forward to talking with other members about this amazing little rocket!

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

Thank you

Hi Hollie, I am at the other side of the state, closer to Detroit, aka, big 3 country. That's some sharp looking ride you've got there. Welcome on board!

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

We have a SLK 55 too! It's white so we could be cousins according to Jbanks15, besides I was born in Michigan, so I know I must have SLK family there.
