Hello, I'm Michael from Columbus, Ohio. I have a 2001 230SLK with 27,000 miles. I purchased the car from my father-in-law's estate and helped him buy the car new in 2001; I have helped him take care of the car and have been the only driver the past several years (he was 89). I have visited the forum for information and was able for fix my vario roof with information and photos from the site. I am appreciative of the knowledge and helpfulness of the forum members.
