Hello,
Not actually an owner yet! just spent six months reading up on available roadsters within my price range (approx £14k) am happy to find that the one I preferred initially on instinct I've finally decided on, that being 2010/11 350 with the best spec I can find.I Was a member and frequent contributor on the Discovery 3 forum for several years and appreciate the value of such forums. Long winded 'hello' but will update as soon as I have purchased one of these fine vehicles.
Cheers Tom.

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

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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Hi Tom,

Welcome from Wirral, England.

Are you in the UK?

Vehicle: 2010/11 SLK 350 would be fine for now.

Vehicle/Location details save you having to repeatedly answer ''what you got'' and makes
getting answers quicker when you ask for help.

Your previous experience will be welcome here.

DIY and problem solving threads are priceless and save money.

Welcome to the world of smiling motoring.

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

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

Given the currency of your budget, I assume you're in the UK...

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.

Finally, 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

Thanks
Dave

Big thanks for the warm welcome, I have updated my profile with the relevant particulars.Did a lot of mods on my Landrover Discovery, it was a fine looking thing when I had finished. Looking forward to doing likewise on the SLK and participating in the forum. Once again thanks for the welcome.
Tom.

Still looking

Not posted anything since introduction as I have not purchased mine yet. Deal with wife - finish work around house/garden etc. then buy whatever I want (within reason) at least my budget is increasing as time goes by. Hoping to get late-ish (2011/12) 200 with Becker/scarf etc. or earlier 350 with good spec. Thanks to the generosity of spirit and phenomenal knowledge on this forum I have a good idea what to look and lookout for. Should have completed the work on my house in the next few weeks and go shopping with around £15k to spend so hope to be more involved on the forum in due course.
Thanks to all.
