I've always wanted a sports car. Now that I am about to turn 60 and retire for the second time, I thought now would be the perfect time to get one. I did a lot of research and narrowed it down to the BMW Z4 or Mercedes SLK230. The slk won hands down. I like the conservative styling and hard top.
My wife and I enjoy driving with the top down in the North Carolina mountains and especially the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

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 or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

Got so many bikers here that we may have to start our own sub group.

230 is a lovely car.
Don't forget to give a night time open top run a go too.
Heating works well in these cars :tu:

We have yet to do a thread on how to relax the face muscles.
Time we did.
All that smiling whilst we drive, those muscles will lock.

Welcome to the forum from another twice retired 65 yr old owner in St. Augustine FL. I'm going to have to try the Blue Ridge Parkway, betting it's fantastic with the top stowed.

Welcome from Little River, SC.

We have a NC/SC SLK Owners Group that gets together around every 3 months for a Saturday of enjoying our SLK's as a group. No fees or dues just what you have for lunch. Our get together is a way to pick up some good tips on your SLK.

If you or anyone else interested in joining us just email us for more info.
[email protected]
On this forum under the heading of US South East Regions look for posts on NC/SC Group meets for pictures of past meets. On Facebook under NC/SC SLK Group

Good way to meet others and learn about SLK's by talking to other owners

We have a meet coming up in North Myrtle Beach February 25th. See the post http://www.slkworld.com/u-s-southeast-region/409026-nc-sc-slk-group-meet-feb-25-2017-a.html#post3328290 for more info.

AMGfreak you are also invited to join out group. I grew up in Rowan County and have family in Rowan and Concord area.

Chuck
