What a wonderful place this is

I run a forum and site in my other hobbie away from cars which is a video game site. In the 8 or so years I have run the site I have seen the forum die a death over the years. It was killed by the likes of Twitter and Facebook.

After viewing lots of posts on this site over the days running up to buying my SLK I already knew it was a modern version of the good old Haynes manual with lots of how to's and general advice. I never thought for one minute a forum would be as lively as this one is. Lots of very active members :grin: which is wonderful. This has now become my first site I visit when sitting in front of the PC or iPad.

I have always preferred forums to the quick posts of Twitter and Facebook. As a new member, I would just like to express my thanks to all the wonderful contributors both new and long standing that make this forum and site a great place.

THANK YOU :grin:

Thanks Sarg for the warm welcome to the forum. Been busy with bricks and lumber, but I should be more involved soon. I have been on a few car forums and this is the best by far. Nice, warm and helpful people under your lead.

Overheard a lady call my 07 slk vintage. Vintage? Would not know vintage when she sees one. You are fine VINTAGE and treasured. Cheers.

All our members are always willing to assist.
Sure, we might say 'have you searched', but 'teach a man to fish'... :D

Gotta say thanks already!

Within a week of picking up my new-to-me SLK, my DIC notified I had a low beam out as well as a license plate light. No problem, I thought. Remember, my last daily driver was a big GMC crew cab truck. Changing bulbs in those headlights are a breeze... Take out two pins and the entire headlight assembly comes out. Swap bulbs. Done in 5 minutes. Not so with the SLK! Using Search on here showed my the "easy" way (removing the wheels and going in through the wheel well.


No biggie... Jacked the front end up and spun off the wheel bolts. Lo and behold, the wheels would not budge! Not sure if I was doing something wrong, the Search paid off again as this apparently isn't terribly uncommon. I put the bolts back in loosely, dropped the car of the jack and worked the steering wheel a bit. Sure enough they finally broke free.


So a few days viewing on here and one day registered and you guys are already paying off dividends! Thanks already for helping me through my first simple DIY effort!

Can't believe it!

I've been a member of SLKWorld one whole year, today - which means I'd have owned Silkie a whole year very soon.. A mere beginner compared with many of you but I'd just like to take the opportunity of thanking each of you for putting up with me for a whole twelve months. Probably the most friendly, well-run forum I've been a member of - and I'm a member of a few!!

And no, I'm not saying this to get in The Sarge's good books. It's a genuine pleasure to be a member.

So thank you!!
