Hi everyone,

I've been a big fan of Mercedes for as long as I can remember (As well as other cars from Germany). Have had numerous models over the years, sadly none are SLK's but I of course like them too.

What landed me here, is not to crash your party, but after searching the net for info on a modification to my car, I found some of the best info out there, HERE. You guys seem to have a real love for sharing information and helping each other and I find that refreshing.

My current Mercedes cars are a 2006 CLS55AMG and a 2008 E350 4matic Sport. Prior to these I had a couple W124 S-class Diesels. Big heavy tanks to say the least.

I also have a love for Small Sports cars with out roofs like the SLK. My current car is a very heavily moded 2002 Porsche BoxsterS I've owned since new. Still has only 21,000 miles on it. The mid-engine driving experience is what hooked me.

I do most all my own maintenance on all my cars (and bikes) when I can. And am always happy to share and help others.

Today it's me that needs help. :wink:

Anyway, that's my introduction.

You guys have a great forum here that's more than worth the time to visit.
