Hi, Just a quick hello. I bought an E class 280 CDI Sport last year, first Merc, and was so impressed with it I have now bought an SLK280 as a replacement for my MX5. Talk about chalk and cheese! Loving driving it, hoping to pick up some useful info and maybe contribute some too. Thanks. Chris.:smile:

Hi Chris, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
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
Thank you

Hi Chris

There's a lot of info in my post above, so I thought I'd add this comment in a separate post...

We have a very friendly group of SLK owners here in the UK Midlands and we meet quite often, sometimes for breakfast somewhere, but always to chat about our cars (or bikes, as some members are/were bikers too). It would be great to meet you sometime, if you're able to make it to any of our meets. If you're interested in joining us, please keep an eye on the UK Region section, as that's where we post the plans. I also maintain a UK Meet Calendar, that includes a summary of all planned UK SLK meets too.

If you'd like to read about an example meet, here's a breakfast meet that we had just this last Saturday:
http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/346073-breakfast-donington-park-caf%E9-10am-saturday-21st-may-2016-a.html

We will be adding more meets, so please feel free to subscribe to the above threads if you'd like to join us. :tu:

Cheers, Dave
