I'm writing to introduce myself as a new member in the UK. I bought a 1998 slk230 about 4 months ago and must say I'm extremely pleased with it. I'd looked at Z3s, the mx5 being far too small, and TTs but Z3s were really to small and all the TTs for sale had very high mileage so, no doubt, had been thrashed at some time. Although I'm a little cramped in the Merc it's ok, providing I slouch a bit! I think I've managed to pick up a good one as it's mechanically sound and the roof works fine. The bodywork doesn't have much rust although numerous stone chips will need treating soon. The interior, like many others, needs repainting but I've obtained the paint, etc from Germany and will do the whole thing before the winter. I've used this website numerous times over the last few months and have found it extremely useful. Just want to say thanks to all the members who pass on information. Will probably be asking questions over the next few weeks - like how on earth do you get a good radio signal? And what do you do with an exhaust system that is old but in good order yet just looks tatty? - so I hope you'll bear with me. Cheers!

Hi and welcome from another Kent UK member!
Sounds like you've secured yourself a sound SLK there. Good luck with your refurb jobs.
I currently live in Sidcup but soon to move down to Herne Bay area so will be quite close to you. Not sure how many other SLK World members there are in your area.
Enjoy your SLK!
Barry

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your vehicle (year,ie 1998) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘personal garage’.




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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a datacard (options on your car) free.

Thanks for all the welcomes! And thanks for the invite tomorrow but can't make it unfortunately. Am hoping, however, to make Tankerton on 17th for the car show there.

Welcome! I am surprised to see you mention Delaware! Most folks here think we are just a suburb of Philly or Baltimore :)
