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.

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

Another member from the UK Midlands... and we seem to have a few new members form Northamptonshire recently too!

If you'd like to meet up with other SLK owners sometime, check out the UK Region section. In there you'll find a 2016 UK Meet Calendar, which includes a breakfast meet at the Donington Park Café on Saturday 21 May:
Breakfast at Donington Park Café - 10am Saturday 21st May 2016

It would be great to meet you, if you'd like to join us! :tu:

Hi there Dexter. I'm in Northants too - the cultural desert that is Wellingborough in fact. Hope to see you on the road/in pics/at events.

Enjoy your SLK.

Welcome

Well as there is nothing that comes after Thrice! I'll just have to say a fourth and very warm welcome from Northamptonshire!
I'm over East in Rushden. I can testify what a great bunch they are here and what a great car the R171 is. I think the R170s are OK too but you are going to love yours. Welcome aboard and I hope we can see you at a local meet shortly.
:smile:

and a 5th welcome from Northampton, having moved here permanently now just over 6 weeks ago... I'm actually in Northampton.. so if your close, just yell if you need help..
Northampton seems to be a popular place for SLK's. I work in Brackmills, and I often have a lunch-time stroll around. One of the places I walk past has 2 (count 'em) 2 172s in the (quite small) car park, a white one and a grey one. So, in that small area, there are 3 SLK owners (at least). And that's just the ones I see on a short stroll. :surprise:
