Hi everyone,

I have put a deposit down on a 2005 SLK 55 AMG and I am due to pick it up on Thursday, can't wait.

Look forward to joining the community and going on many runs together when it is not raining here in Leicester, 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.
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.

Hi Kev, and welcome from the UK Midlands (where around Leicester are you, I'm in Leicester Forest East?)... Btw, great choice of car!

There are quite a few of us based around the Midlands, and we like to get together from time to time, especially if it involves a cooked breakfast and lots of chat about cars! If you'd like to join us sometime, please just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as that's where we post any plans to meet!

No, I think it was just taking a while as I was trying to upload all of them at once! Worked better adding them one at a time.
