Hi everyone, Ben from Manchester (UK) here.

Checking my account, I actually first registered four years ago when I got my R172 SLK 250 CDI and, shamefully, haven't contributed once!

I'm now the proud owner of another R172 - this time the SLK 350 (the diesel was just too noisy!), which will be my third MB so far.

Anyway... happy to be here, and looking forward to getting to know you all a bit better :)

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.

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us, completing your profile and posting an intro! :)

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there! :tu:

There's a summary post that I maintain for all UK meets here, and links to examples and pictures from this year's past meets are available here.

Finally, we also recently started plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Thanks
Dave

Thanks everyone - I'm definitely up for a meet at some point... I'll keep an eye on the UK section, as you suggest. Cheers :smile:

Welcome from the Wirral.

You're close enough for Cheshire meets.
Not too far for some of the Midlands meets.

If you can, try for Donington Park on the 30th.
It's, in my opinion, an ideal meet for first timers.

Oswestry in December is one not too far away either.

You have just missed a topless night time trip to Blackpool Illuminations, maybe next year.

All the details for these and more in the UK region threads.

See dbgrn post earlier for quick links.

Gah...I'd love to join you on the 30th, but I'm afraid I'm driving up to Scotland on Thursday to do the fabled North coast 500 route.. Won't be home til Monday evening.. So, can't make it :(

Next time though! I had to re-read your post a few times just then. - couldn't get past topless haha :D

Things are a little quieter for meets at this time of year, as you might imagine, but just keep an eye on the UK Region section and I'm sure there will be a meet that you can make at some point. :tu:

Enjoy your trip!

We'll be topless on the prom again in 2017 I believe.
