Hello fellow forum users. Im Pres (my online personna) but, away from the interwebs, I am also known as Ian. 43 years young with a love for German cars.

Having recently picked up a facelift 2008 SLK 200 I have done the wise thing and signed up here :wink:

Having loved them since the R170 launched and, nearly buying one last summer I have finally bitten the bullet and, joined the world of top down driving.

The SLK is my plaything, I also have a 2014 A250 4Matic which got me into Mercs.

In the run up to buying my SLK, I used this forum as an outsider reading up on my forthcoming purchase. Now I am an owner, joining here seemed a very sensible thing to do.

Now to trawl the site more as a registered user :grin:

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.

My SLK.

Since I got the car a week ago, I have fully detailed the interior (removed all traces of the last owner :wink: and, today, set to work on exterior. Washed, leathered and, quick detailed.

When I get a little more time, I will clay bar the paintwork to bring it up nice and then wax.

The car is getting a bit of TLC 0:) as anything as beautiful as an SLK needs some loving.
