Hi guys,

Joining the forum!

I'm a bit of a 'sunday driver' these days since I use train to and from Central London from Richmond for work.. Found a nice example 2004 SLK350 with full Merc history, but needs a little TLC so haggled down price and bought it as a bit of a project!

Doing some minor fixes including;

- replace faulty comand head unit
- need to refurb headlights (very cloudy!)
- discover why SRS light on
- replace parking / license plate lights with LED

So I'm sure I will be consulting this forum regularly for tips

Overall love the car already, brilliant auto gearbox / lovely sound / nice heavy steering / comfortable!
