Hi all.

I'm approaching retirement and after years of wishing for a sports car, have only just realised the dream.

I bought a CDI250 AMG sport (R172) in March. It's taken a bit of getting used to (consider that my main car is a Honda CRV) but after 6 months, it's simply the best car I've owned or driven.

We've had a miserable summer here in Scotland although it has improved considerably since mid August and I have had the opportunity of al fresco driving!

Mercedes and Open Top driving are new to me and I look forward to gaining good information from the site.

Mike

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 Northamptonshire!! This is a great site for all SLK owners - I too have a 172 250 CDi (though sadly not the AMG variant). Enjoy posting - some pics of your pride and joy would be welcome.

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

I moved down here from Ross-Shire last year. You have some perfect SLK country around about you, hope you are enjoying it to the full. :tu:
