Welcome to The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from 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 or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
FREE!! 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.

Thank you

Hi Mike, and welcome to from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

I can't help with where to source a front bumper and the arch liners, but perhaps someone else will be along shortly with some suggestions..

In the meantime, 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 (there's at least one member already marked in the Devon/Cornwall area): SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Hi Mike, welcome to the awesome forum from Mike in Hedge End in Hampshire.
I used to live in Bovey Tracy (where my heart still lies) and went to school in Newton Abbot!
Good luck with your new toy and hope you get your bumper sorted.

Welcome to the forum,

Local junkers?

There are websites in the US where you can bid on salvage title vehicles as well to obtain parts. I'm not sure if you have something like that there.

Great - another member in the South West!

Hi Steve, and welcome to the Awesome Forum from Bude, North Cornwall.

You'll find so many helpful people on here, and great as @slk320chick's tips are, I think you may be struggling to find many breakers yards in Devon ..but good luck with your search.

Really good to hear from another South West member (there was @sparkyman, a couple of weeks ago) so our representation 'west of Bristol' is growing. We could soon be having meets to rival the Midlands!
