I just purchase a 1998 SLK 230. 190,000 on the speedometer. Runs well, but has a few isssues. I wasn't looking, But for $500.00, I couldn't pass it up. In searching the internet for possible troubleshooting assistance, I came across this forum. Seems to be a lot of smart, experienced folks here and I consider it a privilege to be part of the group. At 75 years old, will probably ask many questions and contribute little. But thanks for letting me join.
