Thanks for adding me as a new SLK World member! I live in Oulu, Finland (I know, a bit north for a roadster...) and bought my first SLK a couple of months ago. Can't wait for the snow to melt!

The car is a 1999 SLK 230 Kompressor, R170.447 (pre-facelift). The previous owner has done some work on it, like installing a lowered suspension and a Raid steering wheel; let's see if I'm going to do something about those in the future. I kinda would like the car to be pretty much original. Also, it has some minor glitches (driver side windshield wipers not working quite well and the cabin heater fan sometimes stopping). I'll probably be asking some questions and assistance regarding those in the future :)

Anyway, glad to be here!

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.

Welcome from Belgium. Proud owner of a1999 SLK 230 K too.
Welcome from Chippenham, Wiltshire.

I spent a little time working in Finland; whilst I can imagine winter isn't ideal for driving a roadster, I can't imagine a more beautiful place to drive one in the summer.
