Hi,

I live out in West Wales (near Newgale beach ..stunning!!) and I've just bought a 1999 SLK 230 K with about 75k miles on the clock. All seems to work well, all nice and dry, no sign of any rust and a new MOT issued. Having said that ..the exhaust is boomy and raspy (to me, at least). And it's not very quick ..my ML 320 accelerates quicker.

Having read quite a few posts (I'm on holiday, first opportunity for 'studying') I'm becoming familiar with MAF's, and K40 relays etc. Plenty to play with when I get back home.

Lovely car, great fun to drive around in with the top down!

David

(strictly speaking it's my wife's car, to go with her A 160!)

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

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 free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Thank you all for the warm welcome to the forum! I've had a good search (I think!) for the the thing I'm really curious about (Does my exhaust sound right, and who can advise me in West Wales?) ..and I've not found anything so I'll go and make my first post!

Thanks for the invitation to drop by in Snowdonia, it's appreciated! We share our time between Pembrokeshire and Cyprus ..and we're out in Cyprus at the moment, so unfortunately I won't be able to be there. I'm still very getting the hang of the forum and hadn't realised that there was a 'UK region section' so I'll go and check it out. Thanks again.
