Gollom (Steve) from the UK

Hi

I'm Steve and I live in the north of England (near to Manchester)

The MY2004 R171 SLK200K (MY2004) actually belongs to my beautiful wife Suzanne She has always wanted an SLK and original brief was white with red leather and airscarf. Well, we managed black with black leather and airscarf - 1 out of 3 isn't bad! Gotta start somewhere - this early model was the best we could afford, but will move upwards as finances allow.

Anybody know how to remove the HUGE grin from her face when she drives top down? She did mention to me yesterday that a 100mph warning had flashed up.... Tsk! Tsk!

I have had a few Mercs (including an awesome E300-24v!) and currently drive a MY2003 W211 E240 which I adore and have no plans to change - IMHO the W211's are just so *right* and timeless

In our spare time we like to travel (USA is probably our favourite destination!) and spend time in our Motorhome Hetty the Hymer

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.

Welcome from the Wirral.

UK region is getting active, although you're nearest are Cheshire and Scotland at present.

We'd love to see you guys at a meet.

Check out the UK region and calendar to see what goes on.
