I just bought my first SLK. A black 2004 200K. Also have an E-class W211 (or my wife to be precise) 2005 mod. with 580.000km on the clock. Still running like new.. No oil consumption and starts imideately in -15 deg Celsius. Warms up in 500meter drive with the automatic webasto. Unnesesary to say I´m happy with that one. Also have an X5 E70. Have had a hang for the BMW´s for many years but don´t like the look of the Z4 so I opted for an SLK when it was time to get a convertible. Have had 12 different BMW´s the last 12 years but this is only my third Mercedes. I really like the look of of the SLK and also the hardtop. So far I really like the car even if the engine is lacking a little on the power side. Hard to get a 280 or 350 here in Norway and VERY expencive as the goverment put heavy taxes on big engines.
My education is as a flight mechanic and aeronautical engineer. Have been working with the F-16 and C-130 in the RoNAF. Now working with people only so it´s a great relaxing hobby for me to be in my garage maintaining and caring for my cars. Also very interested in boats and have a sailboat as we live on the beautiful Norwegian coastline. Had an Yamaha XT 660 bike but sold it in favour of the SLK. Didnt get my wife to join me on the bike but she really like the convertible :)

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.
