Hello everyone,

Introducing myself. First time MB owner. Just purchased a 2014 SLK 250 with low mileage and I am looking forward to many miles of enjoyment. I have ridden quite a number of motorcycles over the years, but my health has deteriorated just a little and that combined with being age 64 has made riding a little more difficult. Plus, the members of my riding groups have slowly exited over the past few years. I was a good time for me to sell my Harley and begin a new phase of sports car convertible traveling.

I am looking forward to reading about others' experiences and suggestions for mods and maintenance.

David M.

Hi David, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro. We have a lot of former (and still current) bikers here! :)

Download your car’s brochure:
Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
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

Welcome Carolina Doc,

I see another member of our NC/SC SLK Group has already posted we are having a meet on February 25th in North Myrtle Beach. Do come out and join us. Good way to meet other SLK owners we do not have any fees or membership cost. The only thing is pay for your lunch.

Please email me at [email protected] if wish to attend so I can add you to our head count for the restaurant.
Your wife is also invited to attend along as she can talk to the other ladies about the wind blowing their hair. Email your name and wife's name and where you live in SC. Hope to see you Saturday. Weather report is calling for low 70 degrees and a mix of sun and clouds.

Chuck

Hi David,
Welcome from Wirral, England.


You've stumbled upon the 4 wheel home of current and former bikers.
Roughly 50% of us.

We have a free to enter monthly competition.
Entry is open from the 1st to the 15th of every month. You simply post a reply with 3 photos.
After the 15th we usually open a poll for members to vote on their favourite.
Don't forget to enter yours come March :D
Here's the main thread:
ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


This month's entries: Share the love and cast your vote here:
http://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submissions-voting/416114-vote-here-february-2017-slkworld-com-ride-month.html

Biker? Meets?
Well we have a thread for local meets and info:
U.S. Southeast Region - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


Can't find anything going on right now?
Anyone can set a meet.
Pick a place (coffee and cake with decent car park),
Give a couple of weeks or more notice (Not everyone is a daily visitor)
And Bob's your uncle, a meet is born.

Thanks for all the kind welcome messages. I have been busy exploring the forum and learning some new things.

I've owned a corvette and a 350z in the past, but I enjoy driving the SLK much more.
