Jim from the UK

Hi everyone,

I own a yellow SLK230 Kompressor with an auto box.

The car is a real head-turner, is great to drive and I love it, especially the colour! My wife hates the yellow but you can't win them all!

I'm from East London and work as a bookie at Lingfield Park Racecourse.

Jim

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.

Thanks Jeff.

I've tried to upload photos but the files sizes are too big.

Also, Can I edit the thread that I've put on because there are a couple of spelling mistakes?

The title should read "Check" and not CECK

Yes I agree Jules!

They're great fun to drive!

How do you get photos on here. My file sizes are too big. How do you fix that?

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

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time, although things tend to be a little quieter during the winter months. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there!

There is a summary post that I maintain for our UK meets ( here ). Links to examples and pictures from last year's meets are available here. We're a friendly group, and always happy to welcome new members at any of our meets.

Finally, we also recently started plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Thank you
Dave

Hi Jim,

Welcome from the Wirral.

Yellow is fine by me (400four is yellow).
230 is a lovely motor. We cut our teeth on one.

The were a couple of meets in Kent in 2016.
I expect more to follow this year.
Link to last one:
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...ml#post3095234

There's an M25 night drive coming up:
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...eb-2017-a.html

You've just missed out on entering the RoTM for January (1st to 15th).
But you could vote for this months winner (15th to end of month) and enter your own car on the 1st of February.
You simply post three photos in the thread. It's free!
Check it out.
