Hi All,
My name is Stan and I've just acquired my first SLK. Its a 2014 250 AMG Sport in Diamond Silver. Extremely happy with it so far....

In the process of organising a space saver spare wheel, parking sensors and possibly a reversing camera.

As I'm retired, I have plenty of time for polishing :-)

Maybe catch up with other local members if there are any meets?

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.

Definitely desmodromic.......only just jumped in, but the ponderosa cafe is always good for a soirée, some great roads to get there too, or the Rhug cafe on the a5, popular with petrolheads and good scran too
This will be 1976 all over again, so get the top down and the ambre solaire on standby!

Lots of stuff happens in the midlands not a bad run.

Hi @Cobra427 and welcome from Northamptonshire.

You will find this is a great friendly site, full of useful tips and tricks.

Being where you are, there is bound to be a meet local to you - check out the UK & Ireland Members Meet Calendar, and the UK Members Location Map (or is that the other way round? I forget!).

Remember: 'Search is your friend'.
