Hi guys !

I'm French (desperately sometimes :crying:), retired, and I just bought my first convertible, a 2005 SLK 200, manual gear box, iridium silver.

Until now I had no idea that driving a car with no roof could be so magic, especially a Mercedes ...!

I'll post pics whenever possible, but my SLK has nothing special.

I have just ordered a short radio antenna as mine is ridiculously long, and intend to buy a glass rear window and may be also the magic roof device that allows you to operate it with your car key remote .

See you !

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 Wirral, England.

All SLKs come with the satisfied smile of the owner.

The SmartTop is the first change to make.
Being able to leave a building, press the button on your key, then watch the faces on everyone is a free bonus.
And turns the smile into a grin.
