Exclamation Newbie - in distress!

Hello everyone! My name is Loren. I own a 2003 SLK230 Kompressor that has been more trouble than anything else.

I've always loved Benz's, and I instantly fell in love when I drove it. Unfortunately, the individual who I bought it from completely duped me, and lied to me, but it's too late to take any legal action. So, I'm just going to make lemonade.

My SLK has a blown head-gasket, and everyone here seems so knowledgeable and helpful, I just thought some advice from you all would be nice.

For more details on my bad decisions, please visit https://www.slkworld.com/slk-parts-wa...ml#post3240041 . Thanks for ANY advice, I really really appreciate it!

To the polls!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

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 or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Pssh, of course you did! Don't fret! I'm just getting used to the forum, that's all!

So, Mr. Founding Father/Ride of the Month, how's Florida? It's beautiful there! Have you been to Disney World and Universal?

Oh, it's that huge magical city full of wonder and delight. You know, nothing special. ;P

Wow, that looks like fun! I'd be scared to show my face though, with my busted up old lady. . And look how lovely and sunshine-y everything and everyone is! And if they're all as nice as everyone here, it must have really been fun! You guys do some racing?? Of course not... Lol



Oh, did your birthday pass? HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Another year of family, friends, and new experiences and stories to tell! Congratulations! Are you having birthday fun?
