Alright, here's my "new member" post. I'm Steve, I live in the Seattle area, and I have a '13 SLK250. I bought a lease return last year with only 16K miles on it as I needed a newer commuter car. Up to 25K miles now, and just changed the oil yesterday (finally!) I've always done my own maintenance, but could not find any info anywhere on this car, so it was a learning experience (took over an hour - I even had to make sure I was jacking it up properly..:surprise:

Happy it is still under warranty, as the roof was leaking. Apparently this is common, but I think MB of Seattle got it fixed (so far so good!)

I'm a bit of a car guy - My garage holds a '66 Datsun roadster, an '85 Mazda RX-7 GSLSE (1st gen) that my mom bought brand new, two Suzuki LJ10's (think 25 years before the Samurai), a Suzuki LJ81 (similar, but a pickup with fold down sides), an '86 LWB Samurai, and my wife's '08 Lexus IS250 that we bought new in Oct. '07, and have put 200K miles on. My website is lj10.com, for info on the old Suzukis.

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 Portland, Oregon. Check out the SLK NW Group under the clubs section of the forum. They too are based in the Seattle area and have Meets/events at least once if not twice a month. Some meets are just for coffee and a drive to lunch, while other drives are over a weekend. Enjoy the forum and the top down driving.
