Aloha,
My name is Diane, I have a silver 2003 SLK32 AMG with 75K on the clock.
Her name is Rose (I got her from a dealer in Rosedale CA) we now live on Maui in Hawaii, so we don't get to drive faster than 55 miles ...ever.
In fact most roads are 30 - 45 limits ;>// .... with lots of pot holes.
Last week we ripped a tire on a road which was under repair, yesterday Rose got towed to the shop to have her tire replaced. (photo attached Maui style)
I have had her for almost 10 years and love every drive....she is getting a little glitchy in her old age, I'm hoping by being on this forum I may be able to keep the cost of repairs down :(!!
I look forward to following everyones tips and experiences....
Mahalo!
Diane

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

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 or use the 'quote' button so we know who you are asking or replying to or referencing.
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.
