Hi!

Owned an '05 SLK350 for a couple of years now and have just come across this forum. What an amazing library of knowledge, thanks to everyone who has contributed.

My SLK is completely original at the moment but after changing the boot struts and the plastic trims on either side of the rear screen and restoring the headlights to their former glory I've kind of got the car bug again and am thinking its time to see what else I can do :smile:

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.

Hi Steve,
Welcome from the Wirral.


Worth checking out the uk region threads.


Many of us have gatherings. A great way to meet new friends and scope some of the upgrades that can be done.
