Hi

After a number of months looking for an SLK I've recently acquired a black 2008 350. I'm really pleased with the car and, having considered options from other manufacturers, think I've got an ideal mix of performance and real world practicality/convenience. Last time I had a convertible was an MGB approximately 30 years ago, so there is also a bit of nostalgia thrown in there as well.

Having already looked round the forums it looks like there are plenty of tempting possible mods and lots of knowledge available but for the moment I'm just going to enjoy running the car as it is.

Jamie, In addition to the above welcome from me, here's some more info, given how local you are to a bunch of us in the Midlands...

As Myk (Avel Du) has already suggested, we have quite a few members in the UK Midlands that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there! :tu:

There's a summary post that I maintain for all UK meets here, and links to examples and pictures from this year's past meets are available here.

Finally, we also recently started plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Thanks
Dave

Hi Dave

Thanks for your welcome message.

I did notice that were a few members in the East Midlands and will try and get along to one of the meets. I'll also have a look at the proposed Scotland trip. I've driven up to the West of Scotland a number of times in recent years and its fabulous countryside to drive in.

Jamie

Hi Jamie, welcome to the forum. I had an enquiry from a Jamie in West Bridgford for my black SLK55 a couple of months back, was that you? Glad to see you found a car you like and look forward to meeting you at a meet soon. :smile:
