This site is excellent. I am in the market for a 2012-2013 SLK 350. I like to do my homework on the internet before I make a big purchase. It's nice to see an active forum with lots of Info. In the past, I've owned a 2001 C320 Wagon and a 2016 GLA 250. Currently have a 2012 Audi Q5 and a 2007 BMW X3. I wanted to add a sports car to the garage, since I've sold my last Sportbike. I'm 55, so I'm just starting to grow up.
I started searching for a BMW Z4 hardtop convertible, but just a few weeks ago, the SLK 350 caught my eye and I'm hooked. I'm running out of time and I need to get a vehicle in the next month.
I'll likely be lurking until I make the purchase, but you'll know when I do.:wink:

Hi, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

Good luck with your search :tu:

One of our mods will be along shortly to "officially" welcome you but in the mean time here are 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.

Thanks for the welcomes. The links and info provided are awesome. In just a few days I've discovered there is way more support and info from SLK enthusiasts as compared to the Z4. I think the Z4 guys don't mod/work on their cars. Things are looking promising.

I would love one, but 2 kids at University of South Carolina are making sure I don't save any money for myself.
