Cheers guys.

It'll only happen today if we get enough newbies joining,
or entering RoTM.

Jeff has taken the mop and bucket off me.

Great I thought.

Then he gave me a silver plated one with a picture of a minion on it plus motto.

Congrats on the 5k. That's posts, not a running event. Although I would congratulate you on that as well.

Thanks for everything you do to support the forum and help us and other members..
Sheer chance, but here goes number 5000!


You know my opinion of this palace. (Don't correct it Jeff, I do mean palace and not place)

It's a forum to be proud of. Down to folk like yourself, the other mods and Jeff.

Not forgetting the many experts and members who post about the issues that they have.
Many of the diy threads are even better than officially published books for maintenance on other cars.
Truly impressive.

Equally important are those who use this place to solve problems and report back.
Knowing a suggestion has worked for someone else gives confidence when trying things out for yourself.

The small bits and bobs that I do just make up for all the misplaced posts and poor spelling that you and Jeff have to cover.
Gotta balance the books.

The meets & short breaks on the UK scene has been growing for sometime. The response to Scotland in the spring has been outstanding.
https://www.slkworld.com/united-kingd...ng-2017-a.html

Many of the folks stateside are active to (~50 cars at Oktoberfest)
https://www.slkworld.com/u-s-florida/...-new-post.html


For those that value the site but don't want to get too directly involved, a couple of threads about this forum:

https://www.slkworld.com/off-topic/21...-everyone.html

https://www.slkworld.com/off-topic/38...an-do-you.html

And the easiest way for anyone who has not won previously.
Enter RoTM:
https://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submiss...estrictor.html

There is no vote this month.
The poor folk at WindRestrictor are judging.
But they have also put a prize up of their own.

Normally the entries run 1st to 15th, then we vote over the last weeks of the month.
Mercedes Benz SLK Forum - A Mercedes Benz Discussion Forum
Again, when we are able to vote (NOT NOVEMBER ), you can contribute by voting.
Members get a buzz by knowing others like their car, even if they don't win.

If you have never been to a meet, take a look at your regional threads here:
Mercedes Benz SLK Forum - A Mercedes Benz Discussion Forum

If there's nothing current just start a new thread:-
"Anyone interested Coffee and Chat DATE/LOCATION"

Now for brekky.
A fry up to celebrate. (Yes, Russ. There will be eggs )
