Hello all,

A quiet greeting from the centre of the UK, Buckinghamshire but right on the border with Northamptonshire.

Don't actually own a SLK/SLC yet, still looking for the right car at the right price. but I think I'm getting close to success!

Found this site while doing my online research, having been a user of Mazda 6 user forums in the UK for a while and found them very helpful.

Thanks,

Martin

Hi Martin, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

Good luck with your search. :tu:

One of our mods will be along shortly to "officially" welcome you but in the mean time here are 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 @Welshdrive and welcome from Northamptonshire.

This is a great site full of friendly people with all sorts of knowledge about SLKs.

Look out for a link to the UK Meet Calendar and the UK & Ireland Members Location map - a link will be posted by a moderator (if one hasn't already done so ;) .

Hope to see you (and your new ride, whatever it turns out to be) in the near future.

Hi Martin, 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 (even if it's before you've found your SLK), 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
Dave

Thought you might appreciate an update.

The search was succesful and I picked up my 2016 SLC 200 about a week ago. :)) Been a very busy week so only driven it three times but really happy so far!

Lots to learn to get the best out of it, but the Phone app with the manuals is really useful. Totally different for anything I've ever owned before...
