Arrow Dear Sir and Madam, I am new.

Dear Sir and Madam,

I am new member with a 2012 SLK 250 1.8t R172 in Palladium Silver.
SLK is a fun little roadster and make me fall in love with Mercedes Benz.
It is sort of a garage queen and done 14000km after all these years.
K&N filter and resonator delete done.
Click S or M mode and listen to the exhaust pops is the best thing to do on week end.

ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes
Benz SLK Forum


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.

Welcome to the forum
Where search is your friend
and the info never ends

You can use the word ---> Mod <---- (short for moderator) instead of madam or sir. A lot more friendly AND less
words to type as well

Hello every one,

Thanks for the warm welcome.
I am a car lover and let me post more photos!



I have also swapped a pair of Osram Night Breaker Unlimited D1S onto my car.
The increased light quantity compared to standard xenon lamps ensures visibly better illumination of the road surface.
This means greater visibility and a significantly longer response time. Perfect bulbs for fatigue-free and comfortable drives.



Giving my car a bubble bath is one of my favourite activity.
Guess I spend more time washing it than driving it.
