Hi to everybody here! Its a great place for SLK owners! I got my first SLK 200K a few days ago while I owned in the past several MBs. Now, we still have one A150 of my wife and one E250CDI 4matic station as our family car. Silk is now my personal "toy" and I am already in love with it! It's a 2008MY with 6speed manual transmission. In the near future I am going to convert it running LPG thus reducing running cost up to 50%. It need several cosmetic improvements in trims :crying: especially on dashboard including replacement of A20 HU. To be honest, plastic trims and dashboard seems to be low quality for an MB. Anyway, this is love not logic... I consider this forum of great value for all SLK DIY owners like me. Thanks for accepting me in your group!:grin:

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

First please update your location and vehicle (Put looking!)(year?: 1996-2016, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

Your 1st thread should be your introduction so we can welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
