Smile New from Southwest Ohio

I'm hooked on Mercedes Benz! Started over 25 years ago with a Euro 1964 230SL that we kept for almost 10 years. It eventually needed to be restored, but attracted many admirers in the Mercedes Club.

Growing family demands had us moving to a 300TE wagon that we put over 150k miles and had no major issues.

Kids grown so bought a mint condition, bright yellow 1998 230SLK in North Carolina and only drove it sunny dry days for play.

We have now moved onto a 2007 350SLK and loving it!!!

Great automobiles.

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

Please update your vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. And it only takes about 30 seconds to do!





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.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member or guest will address your question.
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.
New members and guests 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 World Forum

Thank you,

Welcome aboard from Ottawa Canada - not so far away. Seems to me we have another new member from your fine city.
That's quite an MB pedigree - too bad you had to let that 230 go...

Thanks, it was very hard to make that decision! I'm hoping who ever bought it loved it as much as I did. Who knows, maybe I'll see it again in one of the Mercedes forums.

Howdy and welcome from Austin, Texas. I spent a few years up in Ohio - Beavercreek, OH to be exact (up near Dayton). Now is probably the best time to have the top down up there. It's already getting too hot here in Texas, but I'm still loving it.
