First time I have joined a car forum :smile:

Just bought a pristine 2007 SLK350 (6sd manual) only 48k miles with most options installed. Thrilled with the car. The optional sports suspension upgrade with 18" rims gives great road manners and the 3.5 V6 sounds great with the roof down.

I have been a car nut all my life ... now almost 50 (ouch!). I have a computer electronics and software R&D background but over the last 12 years I have been in business development, project management and programme management.

I have rebuilt a few cars (including Ferrari Mondial and Mitsubishi GTO) and also designed, repaired and sold parts no longer available from the OEMs ... but only has time has allowed.

Having already found SLK World a really useful resource I felt it only fair to join and contribute where I can. My knowledge of the R171 SLK will no doubt grow considerably over the coming months.
Looking forward to many happy road miles :smile:

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.
