Thanks for the warm welcome to SLK World. I recently purchased my first Mercedes, a 2014 model SLK 250 in Fire Opal Red, with just 15,000 kms on the clock. It is a wonderful car to drive in a world where the new cars are now starting to drive us. I look forward to many years of enjoyable motoring in this fine machine, and to further interactions with other SLK owners and members on this great website. Cheers. markmd01

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.

Hi @markmd01 and welcome to the Forum from Brisbane. We have a group down here in SEQ that get together every couple of months for a spirited run either around the Sunny Coast or Gold Coast hinterland. One of our runs ended up at Conroy where we had lunch at the Copperhead Brewery. Keep your eye on the forum for our next run which should be in November, it would be great to catch up with you and check out the new wheels.
