A nice couple with an SLK280 recommended I join this forum whilst I was admiring their car at the Silverstone Classic in 2014. I've finally gotten around to it! They said it was the best possible resource for all things SLK.

I have owned a 2005 SLK 350 (R171) in Silver for 2 years.

Other toys are a 1990 Porsche 944 S2 (road car) and a 1989 Porsche 944 2.7 road-legal track-day car.

Glenn.

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.

Thank you all for such a warm welcome! :smile:

I notice that some of the UK members get together occasionally, I will have to try and organize my life and get along to one soon.

Yes, it isn't by choice, I can assure you. :smile:

Let's see if I can share some pictures of the toy-box.

First, the one you are all interested in seeing



My 944 S2



and the 944 2.7 track-day car



I don't have any photos of the Golf!

Nice photos Glenn, good to see the track car photo was on the track, in serious action. More lean on the drivers head than the chassis.
For the bonus points now, without checking any reference, which of you 4 cars is the most compact in length?
