G'day all SLK owners,

I came across SLK forum through googling.
R171 was recently bought and I'm caring for it!
Actually, it's from my reminiscences about r170 in former days which gave a lot of distinct memories.

I used to find some tips as a guest to research issues & fix's and made up my mind to get a little more involved.
I am from South Korea. There is also a community but it can't be compared to here in terms of size and quantity and so on.
Here is so freezing nowadays, I'm waiting for April which can cover all areas with cherry blossoms here. U guys know the feeling with slk. :grin:

Anyway thanks for reading :smile:

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

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.

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

First please update your profile with your vehicle model year (e.g. "20?? R171 200K" instead of "r171 200k"), if you haven’t already done so, as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
Follow this to update: ‘User CP’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’ (and then click ‘SAVE CHANGES’ button at the bottom of the page).


Thanks
Dave

Hi Drew,

Welcome from Wirral, England.

The reason that the model year is important is for when you ask for assistance.
Different years can have slightly different systems.
Makes things easier when we know what year you are asking about and save repeating the information.
