Hi All,

New member here from Edinburgh Scotland.
I wanted to say hi and a big thanks for your posts as I have been able to fix loads of things on my cars with your help. It's a great forum with great contributors. :tu:

I have just bought my second SLK. The first one was a red 2000 SLK 230 Komp with red interior. I bought it for my wife but I wound up driving it more than she did. :laugh:

Unfortunately we had an accident so I bought another one, it's even older: 1998 SLK 230 but black this time - planning to drive myself a lot. And my wife looks in it pretty cool too.

No matter what the seller is saying there are always a few things wrong with old cars. My current project is to do this new SLK up to my standards. Fortunately you can buy the original Volico interior paint and fix faulty roof, window, etc easily. These old SLKs seem to run forever, I have never had any problem with the first one after I have fixed it up initially. They are great cars!

So thanks for your contributions, keep posting they really help! :Beer:
Probably I am not the only one: I have brought my SLK to the dealership or to a few specialists and they have not been able to tell what was the problem, came up with different ideas for insane prices. So I had to keep searching on these forums and eventually fixed the thing myself for nothing.

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

Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
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.

Thanks for the warm welcome, it's nice to see so many SLK enthusiasts.
When I was considering buying the second SLK I had to realize I'm an enthusiast
