Hello SLK Community. I have shopped, researched, and came very close to purchase of "the perfect" SLK55 but to date still looking. I have enjoyed the wide range of info, comments, and opinions found here and hope to be able to provide some personal exchange after an upcoming purchase.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

Ah! The thrill of the chase!

I remember mine as if it was yesterday.

Then again, it was only successful 3 weeks ago!

Hope your hunt is just as successful.

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.

Welcome from the Pacific Northwest. It took me a year to find what I was looking for, and then a flight from Seattle to New Jersey. I had a really nice drive home.

Welcome from Southern Oregon, USA. I am still looking for an SLK, I started out thinking of an SLK 250 but after spending some time on this board I am thinking of an SLK 55 also.
