Hello everyone.
I'm Ricardo Furtado, born and living in Azores, Portugal. My friends usually call me Ricas, so feel free to call me like that if you prefer to (Ricardo is a bit hard in english wich means Richard). I work in the IT world and i'm fascinated with everything that involves technology and mechanics, meaning that cars are definitely included. Also i'm not afraid of getting hands dirty and do most of the mods and tweaks to my vehicles by myself.
After some time lurking around this forum as a gest, decided to take a step forward and join the community officially. As my main vehicle i have a SLK 200 r172 AMG, wich i love and despite my other vehicles, i find myself choosing most of the times.
Hope to learn a lot here about our vehicles and to make good frienships.
Any thing needed, just ask and i'll do my best to help.
As last word i'd like to apologise for any mistakes i made/ will make, please be patient with me and my writing as i'm portuguese and english isn't my main language.

Best Regards to all and hope that this is the start of a new mark on the star brand presence in my life.

Ricardo Furtado

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. Seems to be a great community and i'm proud of being part of it now.
Nice to see that some of you know portuguese. Perhaps there are other portuguese members around here too.
As for mods, i already have done the smartTop (a must have for any convertible in my opinion), custom front and rear cameras and racechip kit. Some other mods in the line to happen too.

Best Regards.
