Greetings,

My name is Daniël. I'm the owner of a SLK 200 170r, 2001. I'm just interested in all the ins and outs of the car. I'm from Holland (Europe). It's the second car I owned. Before this I owned a Peugeot 206 cc. Not much else to say at this moment.

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.

Welcome! Where in The Netherlands do you live? Some of my ancestors are from Friesland, and I still have relatives living near Arnhem. About twenty years ago, I lived in Eindhoven for a month working on a joint venture between my employer of the time and Philips Electron Optics. My wife and I visited briefly again in 2005.

What a warm welcome, thank you. I'm from Zeeland (the most south-west province of the country). I live near the beach.

Edit: some more background information about me:

I'm 28 years old, a MSc, work in education (as a business/process analyst). Before this I owned a Peugeot 206 cc. I owned it for 9 months but I wanted bigger, better and more comfort. The peugeot also had a electric hardtop. So I searched for a car with the samen sort of roof. I had a test drive in a BMW Z3 and a MB SLK R170 and fell in love wit the MB. The car is from 2001 and had driven 100.000 km (62 137 miles) (checked) and had 2 owners before me. The car has an Alpine IVA d106r radio installed wich was a nice surprise. In the near future I will install a subwoofer and spraypaint my wheels.

Welcome to the forum. My wife is from Holland . . . Michigan. :) There's a Zeeland, Michigan too.

I don't want to start any problems, since I own a couple of German cars, but I was really cheering on the Orange in the World Cup. (But what do I know? I still call it soccer.)

Dag Daniel. Dat is een stap in de goede richting, van een 206 naar een R170. Niet vergeten om lid te worden van de NL SLK club voor mooie toertochten met gelijk gestemden!
