Hi there
I’ve just brought my second SLK - a R172 250 and am very happy to be back behind the wheel after selling my R171 350 a couple of years ago.
The 250 is very different - but it’ll do for now.
anyone got any pointers - things to watch out for and anything I ought to know about the 250 engine?
cheers

Welcome, three months in and not regretting the purchase or joining this bunch of loons whatsoever.

What do you need to know about the 250? Personally I am no engineer 'it'll do for me', for longer than 'now.' On UK roads away from the cameras Torque Talks :)
