Phil Capshaw new member introduction

Greetings fellow roadsters! I recently upgraded my passion for the roadster and purchased a 1999 SLK 230, in the process of selling my Miata. I love the comfort of the SLK over the Miata but it doesn't seem as spry on the road. Still the SLK has more to offer in so many ways. I'm learning my way around the car. I recently installed new shocks and a stabilizer bar. My check engine light came on and the error code indicated that it is the canister purge valve, code P0442. I have one coming but... Does anyone know where it is located on the car? I will be moving to Boston the end of June. Are there any clubs in that area? I'll be driving the SLK from Florida. Also, does anyone know if there is a Haynes manual available for my model? Thanks and I look forward to reading your posts!
