New member, wife and I have had the 280 for 7 years, it's our 3rd car so it's garage kept and stock. I like it so much, I wanted a project car so I got a 350 6spd. Plan on updating the radio/ electronics, wheels, brakes, and tires to start. I been reading options on this site. I will post as I probably begin the upgrade in the spring. I looked at a Z4 as well, but with good service, I am looking far into the future.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

We started off with an 04 230 as a shared car.
Liked it so much that the other two cars gathered dust.

Ended up with me buying a 55.
She got green eyed and got a 350.

His and her cars is the ideal answer.

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

There's a regional thread for meets/ local info:
U.S. Southwest Region - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Good luck with the project.

Thanks for updating your vehicle/location details up front.

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.
