Hi All, I have been a car fanatic since 14 and now at 72 little has changed. I've been looking for a suitable project and have finally found a good 170. It's a UK car and obvious things are diff oil leak, can't find any notes on "how to" but expect this should be a quick fix. Belts need replacing and a strange noise needs to be located and dealt with. Of course, as it is an ex UK car, it suffers from the famous Tin Worm. Probably replace the left front wing and others are fixable. Other than that, I do an annual trip to Dubai & Brisbane as both my daughters have located there. At least I get to watch the Abu Dhabi GP each year.

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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
