I guess I need to provide an intro to myself - my name is Frank Hamelly, I live in Charlotte, NC, USA, have been a car nut all my life. Have had many different vehicles in the past and am now searching for an R171 AMG. I wish they had more color options but that's not unlike the BMW M Series. My brother is a long time Mercedes and AMG owner and got me interested in the SLKs. I look forward to finding the perfect 55 for me (and my wife) and associating with the other members here.

Best regards, Frank

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.

Welcome from Little River, SC.

We have a NC/SC SLK Owners Group that gets together around every 3 months for a Saturday of enjoying our SLK's as a group. No fees or dues just what you have for lunch. Our get together is a way to pick up some good tips on your SLK.

If you or anyone else interested in joining us just email us for more info.

[email protected]

On this forum under the heading of US South East Regions look for posts on NC/SC Group meets for pictures of past meets. On Facebook under NC/SC SLK Group

Good way to meet others and learn about SLK's by talking to other owners.

Come out and join us.

Welcome from Greenville, SC USA. "When" you find the right car, and "if" you get close to Gaffney or Greenville, I'd love to see that nice ride!
