I am a new member; I live in Oregon USA and drive a 2008 SLK350 Edit10n.

I have my mother to blame for my appreciation for MB. She's a huge fan (currently, she drives an AMG loaded 2013 C250), but the SLK is still her favorite model.

I upgraded from an Audi TT roadster (a little brute).

I am looking forward to learn from the many enthusiast and experts part of this forum, and I hope to provide useful opinions and suggestions for others.

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 Portland/Clackamas, Oregon. Check out the Beaver State SLK's by going to tools on the tool bar, then quick links, and lastly social groups. Also have a look at the SLK NW Group under the clubs section of the forum. Great group based more in the Seattle area, but they are known to have drives/events down Oregon way from time to time.
