Hello fellow SLK owners,
I guess I'm not technically an SLK owner anymore. I'm currently in between SLKs. My little Giselle (2005 SLK 350 Black/Black with smartTOP mod) was totaled in a wreck on my way to work a few weeks ago. I had that car for 8 wonderful years and, since she saved my life, I plan to buy another SLK very soon in honor of her sacrifice. She gave me a lot of joy, and a little grief, like when hydraulic fluid started streaming from the vario top one day. But I found a great MB technician to put my "basket case" back together, and he installed a smartTOP too. Best mod to have for a convertible!

Once I find my next SLK, I'll post a pic. I have found a lot of useful information on this site. Hopefully, I'll make some good friends too.

:smile: JMPETERS

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.

Welcome from The Woodlands. Way too many accidents in this area. If you are shopping for a used SLK, I picked mine up from Texas Cars Direct in Dallas. Great prices, no haggle price, no surprises, no tricks. Also, we have a new Mercedes dealership up here in The Woodlands that is really nice and friendly.
