Hi All,
New owner with a few problems outstanding.

I can either show you the photo of the car with fire damage February this year or what it looks like now all repaired. :)

Welcome to the elite SLKWorld forum!

Just a few suggestions to make your time here a fun and informative experience...


[/I][/B]The "Search" feature at the top right of the page is for searching the forum. Many questions have already been asked and answered by our knowledgeable members.

If you are having difficulty finding a solution, you can post your question in the appropriate discussion forum. By doing this, you should receive a quicker response, but please be patient as the forum is worldwide and members live in different time zones.

Private Message (pm) is a tool to communicate with other members privately for instructions or just chatting. In order to do this you must have at least 15 posts. It's easy to obtain the posts by clicking on the New Members Introduce Yourself Here section and just welcome the new members (like we welcomed you).

To post a picture, either start a new thread or reply to one, type what you want to say and click on the 'paper clip' just above, this will open a window to your left, click on 'browse', go to your pictures, and double click on the one you want to post, click on 'upload' and then 'submit' your post.

If you like a comment or want to thank another member for their post, there's a 'like' button to the right and just below is the 'thanks' button.

As a new member you can use the New Posts link at the top of the info bar. It's a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.

When you are ready to leave the forum just click on "Quick Links" and click 'mark forums read', this will clear your screen for when you log on again.

Post your vin in the Vehicle Data Card Request section to get a data card (options on your car) free.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Caught fire in Feb:


The culprit:


Stripped it out in March and proceeded to search for OEM parts and fully rebuilt last month. It looks near perfect again inside. :) You would never know the above ever happened and the insurers never found out either.

Other than that "small" problem, I now have poxy lacquer peal on bonnet, roof, tailgate and dash brake system lamps won't turn-off. Apart from that, I'm looking forward to driving the beastie once I can get it MOT'd.

A fire is never a good thing for a car, but you learn a lot about it when it comes to strip out and rebuild. The fake carbon fibre panels were rather expensive and imported from the US. Total spend to "fix" was around £300 (~$500) and many months of painstaking work. The bulk was in the clearing out of the corrosive fire extinguisher powder. It eats through the metalwork faster than rust!!
