Hi all!


At the back end of April, I bought a 2006 SLK 55 AMG, black leather with the 18" multi-spoke alloys. Got it for a smidge under £17k.

Having come from a modified Megane RS 250 Cup, this is quite a step up in power delivery and feel of the drive! Really enjoying the car so far and the V8 is just pure music to me :grin:
No big mods in mind at the moment as I get used to the car. So far I have only bought a couple of chrome trinkets (5.5L AMG and V8 badge). Planning on making the wheels gloss black.. My cars have always had black wheels, I can't help it!


Looking forward to being part of the SLK world having come from a lively RenaultSport forum! :smile:


Josh

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.

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 Hillsboro, Oregon! You live in a lovely city; the namesake ruins drew us there on a UK holiday back in 2007. We drove a rented 1.4l Ford Escort, so nothing like your 55 or previous Megane! While strolling through town I stopped in at the Vauxhall dealer, and took a seat in an Astra VXR...nifty little hot hatch of the likes we never seem to get on our side of the pond.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum Josh from not too far away - sunny Weston super Mare, well today anyway :smile:

Did I see you on the Pistonheads Car Park list for Wilton House Supercars this Sunday?

I scanned it the other day, think we're the only 2 SLKS.

Have a good day anyway.

Yep, that's me! Hell of a lot of cars on that list. Do you know if it's a proper car park or some kind of convoy thing? Last year, parking was just a big ol' field!

Yea usually a good few cars to look at before you get into the show :smile:

I expect it will be a separate grass area as per previous years. On the main little roundabout, don't go down to the house front entrance and carry on a bit towards Salisbury then take a right, entrance is about half a mile on right, should be the main flow of traffic.

When you get into the field, normal parking to the right, pistonheads to left. If I'm right and it is the same as last few years go out the same way you came in, not the way they suggest, is a nightmare took extra half an hour that way all through the village of Wilton.

Don't forget to print the Pistonheads pass in your recent email.

Enjoy :smile:

Hi Josh, and welcome from the UK Midlands... Great choice of car! :smile:

Good news is that when you decide to have x-pipe and 2nd cat delete work done (and you will :wink: ), you're not far from Infinity Exhausts, who a lot of people on this forum recommend! :grin:
