Greetings 👍🏻

Hi Folks,

I'm Dave from East Sussex in the UK, I've always had a varied Toy Box and have just added an 05 SLK350 to the 4 wheeled fleet!

Got to say first impressions are really great, in the last 3 years I've had a Boxster S, an S2000 and a 350z for the summers. This seams to be an emalgamation of all the best bits 😎

Only failings were declared up front and seam fairly common. Passenger Seat (UK LHS) Airscarf not working and Drivers side seat heater! The dealer tried to convince me that nothing could be done except give MBUK Ł2k but 5 minutes on the Net finding this site convinced me otherwise! Unfortunately I'm a bit of a automotive Ludite when it comes to Spanners so it could all go pear shaped quite quickly 😂

Either way, I look forward to picking all your brains when I balls it up 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I'll add a couple of better Pics when I've got some!

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.

And a warm welcome from Surrey. We're often in East Sussex - the in-laws live in Hastings. Some nice drives in the area if you look carefully.

Hi, cheers for that.

We're in Battle, very close to Hastings so I'd agree about the nice drives..... 👍🏻

It's just finding time to enjoy them 😬
