Hello everyone, new member from Inverness in Scotland. Was looking for something for summer since getting rid of my 330ci and mr2 and now have a Volvo v40 for fishing and work!
I searched for a while and finally found a 2002 slk200, after a test drive I was sold, reminded me a lot of the mr2 and that was an 8 year affair.
Not too many problems with the car so far, just little bits and pieces.
Hardtops sticking and needs a wee punch to get it moving, I'll grease the latches and see how I get on.

Anyway. My names Jamie, looking forward to heeding advice from you and learning about the new car!

Morning and welcome from South Yorkshire Jamie, there is section on here devoted to lubricating the roof mechanism and looking after the seals, another for cleaning and clearing the drains which left blocked will lead to water getting into the car, that's a good start for a new owner and I am sure Jeff or another moderator will be along to point you in the right direction, if the car does not have the glovebox handbook that's on here as well and is well worth reading.

Regards Stuart.

Thanks for the info, it came with very little documentation except a non genuine service book and some old MOT's!
Book will come in handy!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
