Hallo, ich freue mich, Sie alle treffen

Gee, I hope the google translator is working and I am not cursing someone out, or asking for waffles.... Anyway, My name is Gene, I just bought a 2001 SLK 320 and I have been fixing it for the past two weeks. I ran across your website and joined immediately so I could look up some repair threads. Websites like these are invaluable for repairing these cars or any cars for that matter.

I first bought a 1967 Ford Mustang to restore back in 2006, and I joined a mustang forum...most helpful, I might add. Then I bought a 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS to restore in 2008 and joined the Chevy forums for help with that project. Two years ago, I bought a 1970 Ford Torino...but alas there is no Torino forum. Good thing the cars have the same parts as a Mustang!

So now I am venturing into new territory... the foreign car...wow, well I am getting older and my tastes are maturing along with age. So thank you for letting me join this forum. I look forward to pestering you with questions in the future.

P.S. I had an issue with my rear tail lights not working and I looked up the thread and found out about the recall on the R170 series taillights and how the stop light switches go bad. Well I changed out the switch today and SUCCESS! so thanks, and I hope to chat with you soon. Gene

I'm always confused

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

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.

Hi Gene,

When I bought a Mustang, I joined my local pony club. It didn't help with my car, but my roses are firing on all cylinders...
