Smile New to SLKworld from San Jose, CA

Hi,

I just purchased a 2007 SLK 350 for my wife for Christmas. Can't wait to surprise her. The car is like new with just 7500 miles on the odometer. Looking forward to learning about the SLK here!

Franck

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.

Hi Franck,

Welcome from Wirral, England.

7500 miles! That's near showroom condition!
One lucky lady.

Make sue that you get your datacard for the vehicle.
That will give you a list of what equipment it should have.
Vehicle Data Card - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Only two states have regional threads all to themselves.
Guess what?
You're in one of them!
U.S. California - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

The place to go to for meets and local info.

Best take care come the 25th though.
Once Santa spots that present he may not want to let go!
