Hello.

I've been a member for a year or so now. My apologies for not having provided an intro until now.
I live 60 miles north of Toronto.
I've been in the Industrial Automation Industry for 34 years. I'm nearing retirement, perhaps 2-3 more years.
I purchased a 1999 SLK 230, 5 speed, in 2001. It had 34,000 kms on it at the time. It now has 131,600 kms on it. It's completely stock. Just regular maintenance.
My intentions were to have a toy for a "couple of years", but every time I drive it, which is only occasionally, and never in winter, I don't want to part with it. It's just too much fun to drive.
Since my teens I was interested in a 2 seater roadster. I looked at MGBs, Triumphs, etc but waited until later in life and opted for the SLK. Right decision.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, 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, 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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a datacard (options on your car) free.

Welcome from Ottawa! Better late than never friend. There are several members down in TO including at least one fellow 170 owner, Zak. Good to see you're fully enjoying your SLK. This is season 4 for our 06 and we've more than doubled the mileage on it. We just completed a circumnavigation of Lake Ontario - Ottawa to TO, two nights in the Niagara region (yes wineries!), then crossed at Fort Erie/Buffalo to Waterloo NY (outlets) and Syracuse (great restaurant scene and more shopping for the gals). Weather cooperated 98% of the time - car was flawless. 1400kms with an average of 8.3l/100km
