Hi Chris, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro and completing your profile! :)

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time, although things tend to be a little quieter during the winter months. 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 is a summary post that I maintain for our UK meets ( here ). Links to examples and pictures from last year's meets are available here. We're a friendly group, and always happy to welcome new members at any of our meets.

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

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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/iPad pics, you can only attach 1 pic per post this way as iOS 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
  • Finally, the Picture of the Day section is guaranteed to have something to make you smile each weekday morning!
Thank you
Dave

Hi Chris,


Welcome from the Wirral.


Couple of upcoming meets that may interest you.
Don't worry that you haven't got the SLK yet, you'll still be welcome and can maybe ask a few questions before you buy:
http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/409274-first-slkworld-meetup-2017-sunday-5th-february-warwickshire.html
http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/397002-south-west-breakfast-meets-first-date-now-sunday-5th-march-2017-a.html


Kent have several meets during the year. Keep your eye on the calendar:

Depending what you are after:
There's R170 and R171 diy links in my signature below. R172? You're on your own, but there's a good 172 section.


Spare a member a moment of your time and give them a vote:

All for free :D


Good hunting!

Hi all, I'm in the process of buying a used SLK and popped on here for some info. Already found it very useful with respect to paint issues so probably saved me a bob or two as well as a load of grief, so thx for that! Will be checking out the new posts from time to time.



Cheers Chris


Welcome from Surrey...

If you are looking for a R171 facelift model , I may have to give mine up as I am getting a new company vehicle.... if interested PM me and I can email over details... Mike

Welcome to the forum - and good luck with your search. Any idea what model you're after?

Also - I'm just up the road from you - just east of Redhill.

Enjoy the search and let us know which one you get!

Thank you for your warm welcomes.

After cancelling an order on a fire opal red 2015 car (due to info gleened from this forum) we are now taking possession of a 2014 white car.. The car will predominantly be for the wife but I'm sure I'll get the odd sneaky drive.

I will be keeping an eye out for events, but as I'm an active member of 4 other car forums it's going to be difficult to fit it all in. I tend to do car shows mainly, is this something that is done in the SLK community in the south?

We do join in some MB events as a group.
Check out last years archive for an idea.
http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/313178-2016-uk-meet-calendar-2.html#post2834530

We do all types of events.

South Midlands do have shows that we attend as a group and display our cars.

Kent do some SLK only meets that are well attended.

The SW will be having their first SLK meet in March. Indications are that this too will be well attended.

2017 Calendar is just starting to pick up but will get busy as dates get confirmed.
http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/387794-2017-uk-meet-calendar.html

If you fancy trying to have an SLK stand at one of the meets you already got too (two horses :D )
Simply post a suggested meet and date in the UK section.
Anyone is able to suggest meets/events.
