Good day everyone. I would like to introduce myself and my 2005 slk350 located in the beautiful country of Belize. We are located in a difficult location to own a MB as there are no dealerships in the country. For that matter I have found this alternative as I believe a dealership might be pricing the parts too high. Im more confident in this forum than the garage here hahaha!

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.

What a lovely place to live! I once spent a couple of weeks just over the mountains in the Cloud Forest region of Guatemala, on a service mission.

And what a great car! You are living well!

There are many good do-it-yourself descriptions here, and on YouTube. I will be changing the oil in my supercharger this weekend, courtesy of this forum. Hope that enables is to last another 100k miles!

If you can find parts in your area, or at least order parts to be shipped to your area, you should be good!

WELCOME! Belize looks like a beautiful country. I am old enough to remember my geography lessons when it was British Honduras! How did you come to own an SLK in a country with no dealerships? Curious about what the dominant car marques are there.
