Hello from the UK

Just sending my introduction! I’m Linda and from the UK. Currently staying in the Lake District. Just bought our first SLK. It’s an R171 SLK 200 Kompressor. Already seen a wealth of information on here, so looking forward to joining in 😁.

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

Great R171 info:

Lube those seals:
https://www.slkworld.com/general-dis...tml#post226839

your brochure:
https://www.slkworld.com/general-dis...ml#post1511249

mods you should do:
smarttop

https://www.slkworld.com/general-dis...ing-about.html

clear side markers
shorty antenna
led license plate bulbs
led parking lights
carbon fiber on the C pillars https://www.slkworld.com/general-mod...cf-plunge.html
oem windscreen or lighted/etched windscreen

My mods - See my signature block links below - also check my albums in my profile and my videos in the 'Driving Stories' section

FREE GIFT! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). If looking for a car, get the options before you buy!

https://www.slkworld.com/vehicle-dat...-datacard.html


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.
