UK lady drivers?

I have just joined the site and think it's great for a car site that there is a section just for the girls!

I was just wondering how many ladies from the UK were members here, I don't know many women who love cars and driving as much as I do. My friends laugh at me when I get excited about a car - I'm full on at the moment as I'm hopefully picking up my SLK this weekend.

There are a few ladies in the UK as far as I know. I am sure as you use the forum you will get to recognise them. Not always easy from the names. Have a look through the threads in the ladies forum

Hi from a Yorkshire lass.
I also love driving cars and riding my motor bike.
I have only had my slk 350 for 2weeks before that I had a range rover. ( wish I still had it as well looking at the snow out side). The men at work thought I was strange when I was getting excited that my 22 inch wheels were coming for range rover, they said most women get excited about shoes and hand bags not wheels!
But I'm a woman so I can do both :-)

I'm on here for my other half

She loves her slk but when it comes to mechanics or electrics she hasn't a clue so I do all that for her but I registered on here just to get some pointers to help her out as the last thing I wanted to do is make a mistake in a car that cost her Ł8000

Dw she gets really excited about her car too

I live near Southampton (Hedge End) and there are FOUR for sure living locally to me!
I've spoken to two of them and may one day catch the third who drives a very nice pale blue jobbie!
I know the forth but don't want to talk to her as I know her ex hubby!!! She's had it for yonks and loves it so I'm told by her brother!!

I hope you're selling them on the forum! You could form your own SLK coven (meant to be funny...).

Ahem, how do you know her EX??? wink

It's a long story!!
Actually it was her partner and there was a messy parting of their ways!!
Alas I was unable to give out cards to the ladies, but have given out two so far to guys!
Seriously top Up weather at the moment, not conducive to SLK social networking!!
Re a coven, I certainly would like to have the chance to meet the lady in the pale blue SLK! Watch this space!

I'm a lady driver, and I too love cars! I have a lovely 350 SLK,with all the bells n whistles-even TV! I am lucky that my better half is a car nut so I have plenty to choose from-current stable consists of Porsche 993, Land Rover, Jag X Type, Lotus Elan Sprint and RR Silver Shadow..and soon to be joined by a V12 E Type coupe. Enjoying driving with the roof off at the moment!

In Dorset and on my second one. Equally clueless about the tecky stuff but love the wind in my hair, which exactly matches the red leather, not that it really matters.
Got my car under a month ago, just getting it checked out so a bit nervous I might have bought a dud.

Second time,

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

Please update your vehicle (model and year,ie 2007 SLK 350) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Update: ‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘garage’.

Then don’t be shy, we don’t bite. We want to welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. https://www.slkworld.com/new-members-...yourself-here/


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.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member will address your question.
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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a datacard (options on your car) free.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: https://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submissions-voting/

Thank you

I had an RAC check on mine, as I thought it would help in pointing out any issues that needed sorting. Unfortunately it confused me even more as it nothing in it was quantified.....ie there could be this wrong and that etc. Although the guy was thorough.....spent about 3 hours with the vehicle. Probably would not have gone ahead with the purchase if I was relying on the report alone. Thankfully, being on the slk forum I was able to be advised further, and went ahead. Hopefully picking it up early next week!!

I had a client who was buying a lexus is250 from a garage a while back .
As the car was far away he had booked the car in for a Ł250.00 inspection .

All come out all good .

So car was purchased .

Upon me seeing his new flash car i advised him the rear back wing had been replaced and the wheel arch had poor repair work which would cause problems down the line .

The rac missed that it had been repaired .
So ..........

And now fast forward paint job is on the list as its so severally corroded bad .

So an inspection is only as good as how observant a bloke is or she ?

At the end of the day .
