Fly'n high

I've owned Mercedes my whole life and on a couple of different continents, but mostly sedans. You know, the ones with the big V8's in them.
Recently, however, I bought the SLK from a friend who needed some help.
Didn't think I would love it as much as I do.
What a fun car.
Needs a little mechanical work which is why I joined the forum.
A great source of info. from like minded enthusiasts.
I think I'm gonna have this little beauty for a while.

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

Don’t forget to lube those seals:
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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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

Welcome from Old Hampshire in the UK Hope you get many years of happy motoring!

Just one thing, I don't think the Lear Jet is a TOY!!! An R22 maybe, but a LEAR 25? But then again, whatever turns you on!

Hmmmmm......an R22 is a death trap. But you're right. The Lear is less a toy and more a project
