Newbie from Swansea, South Wales, UK.
Hi fellow SLK owners, and greetings from God's Country (Swansea, South Wales, UK)
I currently own a R172 model 250 CDI, fire opal red with beige leather interior, having previously owned 2 R170's and a R171.
I had the car washed yesterday ready to upload pictures, but I noticed it had succumb to the micro blistering problem that fellow Mercedes owners have experienced.
The car was purchased new on 1st March 2013, and has a full MB service history. An appointment has been made with the body shop for next Thursday, 8th Sept, and I will keep you informed of progress.
On a different note, I have lately experienced water dripping on me from the joint where the roof joins the panel above the windscreen. Closer inspection revealed that the corner rubbers on this seal had perished. Again, the car is booked into the local MB dealers on 19th Sept for remedial action.
The joys of motoring I hear you say.
