Hello to all at what seems to be a mine of sharing and cooperating. Just thought I'd introduce myself a little.
I've always been a car buff, passed my driving test a couple of week after my 17th birthday and ran around in an old Ford Popular. Three speed, 1172cc and thought I was in heaven being legally mobile after years of hiding my hobby under a bushel. Moving on I bought a classic MGC and enjoyed the scene for 16 years when I finally got bored with it knowing every nut and bolt that should have been on it (and some that weren't). So I traded up to an almost new MX-5. It was a great car and very similar to the C in many ways but much more comfortable and less of the skipping around the road. But my difficulty has always been being tall and really I was pushing it to fit comfortably. So in November last I got myself into a 2 year old SLK 200 and haven't wanted to get out since. It's the standard AMG Sport version in Iridium silver but has enough on it to keep me occupied and I think it's plenty fast enough. Others will probably disagree!! Brilliant handling, and stable on the road as well as looking fantastic. I'm really looking forward to the summer. My other daily driver is a VW Scirocco but that's another story.
Cheers to all.
Shane.

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

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time, although things tend to be a little quieter during the winter months. 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 is a summary post that I maintain for our UK meets ( here ). Links to examples and pictures from last year's meets are available here. We're a friendly group, and always happy to welcome new members at any of our meets.

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

Thank you
Dave
