Hi and welcome from Old Hampshire! You live in a lovely part of the UK, so will have some great drives and places to visit!
A nice photo taken at Lands End would look good on the Ride Of The Month page! I think there is still, time to enter!!!!
Enjoy!

Hi Steve, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

You have another relatively new member very near to you ( @DaveR. at Red Post )... Check out the new members map I created recently, and let me know if you'd like me to add you to it too:
http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/386474-slkworld-uk-ireland-members-meeting-points-map.html

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.

First please update your profile with your vehicle year and model (e.g. "2005 SLK 200"), if you haven’t already done so, as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
Follow this to update: ‘User CP’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’ (and then click ‘SAVE CHANGES’ button at the bottom of the page). Info in your garage does not update your profile.


Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
  • SmartTop: What is this SmartTOP all the members keep talking about?
  • Shorty antenna
  • LED license plate bulbs and parking lights
  • Chrome/stealth indicator bulbs (still flash orange, but removes the ‘fried egg’ look from your headlight housings)
  • OEM windscreen or Lighted/etched windscreen
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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
Thank you
Dave

Hi Steve,

Welcome from the Wirral.
@daveR will be made up to find another SLKer in his area.

His marker is looking isolated in the southwest right now.

Steve,

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

First please update your vehicle (2005 SLK 200) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.




Thank you
Jeff

Now there are at least two of us .......

Hi Steve, and welcome to the Forum from really close -- Bude, North Cornwall.


As you may have seen from recent posts, I have pointed out that the new members' map (http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/386474-slkworld-uk-ireland-members-meeting-points-map.html) looks pretty bare down here in the beautiful West Country. You could now double our representation.


If you are interested, and have the time, we could perhaps meet for a coffee, and who knows it could be the start of a series of 'SWM's of SLKs'. I will PM you with my e-mail.


DaveR.
