Hi everyone, I'm Nigel from near Cardiff in the UK. In August I bought a 2000 SLK 320 Auto in Silver. I fancied a bit of wind in my hair, fun motoring in a car that I can play with and give a bit of TLC and the SLK looked perfect. Best £3000 I've ever spent!! I love driving it, just so impressed but need to sort out some issues in the next few months. Just discovered this forum so looking to glean some valuable information.

Cheers!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

First please update your vehicle (year?: 1996-2017) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.



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 or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Hi Nigel, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro! :)

First please update your profile to add your your vehicle model year (e.g. "2000 SLK 320 R170"), as that can be useful when asking questions later.
Follow this to update: ‘User CP’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’ (and then click ‘SAVE CHANGES’ button at the bottom of the page). Info in your garage does not update your profile.


We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there! :tu:

There's a summary post that I maintain for all UK meets here, and links to examples and pictures from this year's past meets are available here.

Finally, we also recently started plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Thanks
Dave

Thanks everyone for your warm welcome.
@bigboyows - I guess you're pretty close to me. Maybe if there's ever a meet-up in the area we could say hello.
@Jonathan Jackson - ouch!! bet that hurt. Is the picture on the right before or after crash?

Starting to resolve a few of the issues soon. Boot (trunk?) gas struts, set of NGK spark plugs and a pair of air filters winging their way to me at the moment. Also need to look at replacing leaky headlights, replace the 4 cheap and nasty odd tyres, check out various seals, refresh the leather seats etc., check out suspension bushes and other rubber bits and then attack the bits of rust (which I am led to believe may well be worse than they appear :surprise:). Should keep me going for the next few months just in time for some Spring open top motoring on some of the lovely roads here in South Wales. :smile:
