Hi Guys

I'm Dave, I live just outside Tenbury Wells here in Worcestershire in the UK.

I own a 2005 SLK 350 7-Tronic Auto in Jasper Blue. I was really impressed with the amount of optional extras on this car including Airscarf, 6 disc changer, telephone integration, Comfort Pack, Entertainment Pack with Navigation, Heating Pack, Premium Pack with Auto Lights/Wipers etc.

I was only intended as a stop gap after having my 350z written off but 3 years later I am still enjoying the mix of open top motoring and motorway business cruising.

Unfortunately, I have been experiencing a few issues that I am hoping my fellow SLK fans will be able to help me with!

Cheers All!

Hi Dave, and welcome to from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there! :tu:

There's a summary post that I maintain for all UK meets here, and links to examples and pictures from this year's past meets are available here.

Finally, we also recently started plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Hi Dave

Welcome from the Wirral.

Lucky you, you're living close to the heartland of the uk meets social circle.
Donington on the 30th is a great first meet for newbies.

Nice blue by the way.

Hi 'DAVERUK' from 'DaveR.' in Cornwall! Yes, there are a lot of us about.

Welcome to the Awesome Forum - what these guys don't know isn't worth worrying about. So please you are still happy with your SLK - the 'grin factor' seems to last for years!
