Smile New member English but living France

Hi All.
I'm an English guy living in France. i've been looking for a 320 slk for a couple of years now and finally found a really good one.

2001 SLK 320 Black,with black and cream leather interior and walnut trims. only done 29k FSH. No rust and goes like a train.

I'm very pleased with the car and so far have found it to run faultlessly. For a 15 year old car it is fantastic. It will be used mainly in the summer with the top down but I've done around 200 k in the rain and wind and enjoyed it.

Planning on visiting the UK and putting the car on a rolling road - maybe having it fine tuned.

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

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. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
FREE!! 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.

Hi and welcome Bob, I don't think there is a lot you can do with the 320 no turbo to tweek and I don't think a remap does much, plenty of power there anyway.

Enjoy, regards Stuart.

Hi Stuart,
No problems with the amount of power, but a remap by a good company should give another 25 bhp, better throttle response and better fuel consumption. Also with the rolling road you can see exactly whats going on with the motor. Had my VW diesel passat 2 litre done and it really made a difference - although its easier to tune a motor with a turbo. Also had a BMW Z3 2.8 tuned, - a non turbo car, More power and a much more tractable engine. The tuning is not really needed at all but this is my fun car so I' m going to play around and enjoy it.

Best regards

Bob

Thanks to everyone for the welcome. I've updated my profile and will post some pics soon.

I'm in northern france in a little village not far from Mont St Michael. Caen is the nearest port and I'm frequently in the UK so I'll keep an eye open for any meets in southern England.

Bon route to all
