Cool Helloo from Rugby (UK)

Hi Everyone,

Just got my first Mercedes in the form of a Silver R170 SLK 2.3 Kompressor. I'm a driving instructor and also a psychotherapist (!) so the ability of the SLK 2.3 to "shift" is amazing. Even though I've had many SAAB 9000's with 2.3 lumps, the difference of the supercharger is incredible. Just literally come back from a drive out with the roof down in the night air - glorious!!. Just got to make sure I keep my license )
Chris

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

https://www.slkworld.com/general-disc...ing-about.html

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 free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Hi Chris, and welcome from the UK Midlands!

Great to hear you're enjoying top-down driving in your SLK...

You missed a fantastic day out in the Midlands today though! A few of us met for breakfast at Donington this morning, then headed over to Mountsorrel for their Revival event (traditional village fete, plus some great classic cars on show too). Check out our thread about it here:
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...st-2015-a.html

If you'd like to join us for a meet in future, just keep an eye on the UK Region thread, here:

Chris, tip 4 u (also sent you pm)

use the 'quote' button at the bottom of anyone's post you wish to reply to/reference so we know who you are 'talking' to.

also

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.

Jeff

Greeting Chris. Fellow Rugbeians here.

Glad to hear you're really enjoying your new SLK. Our first SLK was a 230 too, and after that we were hooked!

Whereabouts in Rugby are you? We're in New Bilton.
