Hi All,

My name is Gordon and I live in Ayr on the west coast of Scotland.

I have recently bought a 2003 SLK 200 and plan to go on a road trip later in the year with my wife.

I have a few niggly issues with it - one is a water leak at the passenger door - leaking onto the arm rest and also, an after market stereo has been fitted which I am going to change.

Would just like to say thanks to the people who have posted on this site fixes for both of these issues.

cheers

Gordon

Hi Gordon, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

One of our mods will be along shortly to "officially" welcome you but in the mean time here are 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.

Welcome from the Midlands

Hi All,

My name is Gordon and I live in Ayr on the west coast of Scotland.

I have recently bought a 2003 SLK 200 and plan to go on a road trip later in the year with my wife.

I have a few niggly issues with it - one is a water leak at the passenger door - leaking onto the arm rest and also, an after market stereo has been fitted which I am going to change.

Would just like to say thanks to the people who have posted on this site fixes for both of these issues.

cheers

Gordon

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

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!

There is a summary post that I maintain for our UK meets here. Links to examples and pictures from last year's meets are available here. We're a friendly group, and always happy to welcome new members at any of our meets.

We're also plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map - Please let me know if you'd like to be added to the map. :tu:

Thank you
