Hello everyone. First time merc owner. 2005 SLK 200 R171 Manual - Bristol UK. Wanted a drop top for the summer, once I started shopping, couldn't resist the SLK!!

Car has only done 8,000 miles in the last 8 years. She's crying out for a few fun runs in the sun this year.
Had it 10 days and already put new brakes and discs in the front (first time DIY job!). Having intermittent roof issues, so will likely be asking Q's soon!

Future plans..... Full service, rear discs and pads, front tyres, clean/detail it!!, fix roof, remap, new alloys?!

Say hello;
