Hello folks,
Just picked up my new SLK yesterday. The date was chosen a fortnight ago but what a weekend to pick! Fantastic weather so the top has been down all the way!
Only problem is that my brake pedal has been sticking in the heat. I saw an article on the chat about replacing a bush to fix that problem, so I guess that will be my first job. Might try some penetrating oil before replacing.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com from Northern
California

:burnout::Beer:

Please update your vehicle (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 ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does
not update your profile.

You will never need to ask about part numbers again.



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 or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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.

FREE!! 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.

Hi and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us and posting an intro! :)

We have quite a few members in the UK that like to meet up from time to time. If you're interested in joining us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there!

There is a summary post that I maintain for our UK meets here. Links to examples and pictures from last year's meets are available here. We're a friendly group, and always happy to welcome new members at any of our meets.

We're also plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map - Please let me know if you'd like to be added to the map. :tu:

Thank you
