Hello all, I’ve been trolling the forum for a couple of weeks now and thought I’d actually say hello. I just bought my first MB last week, a 2006 SLK 55 AMG with less than 40k miles. I got a great deal on it after it sat on a dealer’s lot for a couple of months. It’s got the rumble and power of an American muscle car, but doesn't slide off into the ditch when I take a corner over 30. I couldn't be happier. :D

So are there any forum members out here in the Greensboro area? I have lots of people to wave at when driving our Jeep, but haven’t seen too many SLKs. Actually, on second thought, I haven’t seen any SLKs…

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.

Thanks everyone! Seems like a great community you've got here. Everyone seems friendly and helpful which is great because not all forums are like that.

I have a lot of questions for all off my upcoming projects so I'll probably be bugging you with a bunch off dumb questions. Modding the SLK is going to be much more difficult than with my jeep (which you could easily get aftermarket mods for nearly anything). I look forward to working with you guys.

Congratulations and welcome to the SLK forum from Fayetteville. I see about one SLK a month where I live. SLKs are a rare breed, but that's a good thing.

Greetings from Tennessee !

You will find this to be one of the nicest places you frequent on the Internet. The founders of this site make it a point to ban the bloodsport tactics you find on other forums. Ask all the questions you want - no matter how simple they are. These SLK's are uncommon cars in many wonderful ways. They are easier to spot in larger cities.

Also - Make it a point to welcome 15 people in this forum and you will become PM (private message) active - opens up another way to interact on the site.

Welcome to the Forum.

Welcome - boy are you in luck. We've got an active member in our NC/SC SLK Group from Winston-Salem with two SLK AMG's. He's a big track guy too.

Drop me a note at [email protected] and I'll give you more details about Albert and also our SLK Group.

Welcome! We're nearly neighbors - I'm in Apex. I also just got my first SLK 55 AMG in the last month. Hope it isn't politically incorrect to mention this here, but there is a MBCA event in Shelton in August where you can meet some of your MB neighbors.

Thanks again everyone for the warm welcome. It’s cool to hear from people all over the world. I was informed that my profile was incomplete …a couple of times… so that’s finally been rectified. You guys really take this profile stuff seriously :D

Don, Len, Craig…

Thanks for the local club info. I’d definitely like to know when and where any upcoming events are being held. I never could make it to any of the Jeep club meets between work and the family, but I’m hoping that’ll be different this time. I’ll PM you my contact info (whenever I get the ability to PM).

Thx,
-Tony

Welcome from another almost neighbor! This is by far the best car forum I have seen. Can't wait to do a couple of mods like the smart top.
