Hi,
I've just purchased my first MB 6 weeks ago and really enjoying it. It's an SLK 350 on an 07 plate.
Already made a few changes to get it back to a nice clean car, replaced broken fogs with LED fog / DRL units and very pleased with these as they look factory fit.
Repaired a broken indicator lens on the N/S door mirror (thanks to the posts here that explained how to do this :smile:)
Car was a one owner with just about every option except the gear shift buttons on the wheel ... so I might need some help soon as would really like to have these fitted!.

Well, that's about it and again, a big thanks to all who post on SLKworld, I've already found lots of useful info.
Mike.

Hi Mike,

Welcome from the Wirral.

Great intro. the 350s a very popular on here.

You aren't too far from some of the UK meets.
Our friendly UK moderator will give you the full lowdown on our regional scene soon.

There's a handy R171 diy link in my signature below.

The site search engine is pretty good and affectionately know as our 'friend'.

Thanks for updating your vehicle/location details already.
It helps when you post questions at a later date.

Nearly forgot.

Enter our free Ride of The Month competitions.
Just post 3 pics of your car in this thread:

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

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.

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

Some great R171 info, including Owner’s/Maintenance/COMAND manuals, etc.:
Don’t forget to lube those seals:
Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
  • SmartTop: What is this SmartTOP all the members keep talking about?
  • Shorty antenna
  • LED license plate bulbs and parking lights
  • Chrome/stealth indicator bulbs (still flash orange, but removes the ‘fried egg’ look from your headlight housings)
  • OEM windscreen or Lighted/etched windscreen
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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
  • Finally, the Picture of the Day section is guaranteed to have something to make you smile each weekday morning!
Thank you
Dave
