New SLK owner and new to Mercedes, as well. My wife and I bought a 2000 SLK 230 fixer upper for $1800, and I have spent countless hours redoing the interior and fixing rattles. The red interior was peeling badly, so I stripped it and painted it all black. I covered the stock carbon fiber panels with wood grain, and it looks so much better than when I bought it. The cylinders are leaking fluid, so the top does not retract. I know a guy in Daytona who can fix those as soon as I am ready to put out the expense. The more I get it into shape, the more I enjoy owning it. Glad to be part of a community who shares this joy.

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

Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
  • Finally, the Picture of the Day section is guaranteed to have something to make you smile each weekday morning!
Thank you
Dave

Welcome from Wirral, England.


The reason that we ask you to update vehicle/location details is to save repeating the same
information every time that you ask a question.
Also, this site is truly worldwide. That can matter when you ask for help and information.
Are you looking for a bonnet, or a hood, a boot, or a trunk? Makes a difference.


We have a free to enter monthly competition.
Entry is open from the 1st to the 15th of every month. You simply post a reply with 3 photos.
After the 15th we usually open a poll for members to vote on their favourite.
Here's the main thread:
ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


This month's entries: Share the love and cast your vote here:

Daytona?
That's Florida, methinks!
Capital of the SLK world.
Florida regionals:
U.S. Florida - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Come meet the gang:

Thanks, everyone, for the warm welcome! I hope to rub elbows with some of you at some of the Florida meets if scheduling permits.
