Greetings from the great state of Texas!

I've owned Corvettes, 951s, and various BMWs, but this is my first MB. I recently acquired an 2002 SLK AMG, and I absolutely love it. As a 200lb 6'1" guy, I didn't think I would be comfortable in the SLK, but I was pleasantly surprised - it's flippin' brilliant.

Anyway, this site has already been an invaluable resource and I'm certain I will be on here quite often. When I was wrenching on my 951s, I was a very active member of that forum so I hope to duplicate that experience here.

Welcome to the elite SLKWorld forum!

Just a few suggestions to make your time here a fun and informative experience...

The "Search" feature at the top right of the page is for searching the forum. Many questions have already been asked and answered by our knowledgeable members.

If you are having difficulty finding a solution, you can post your question in the appropriate discussion forum. By doing this, you should receive a quicker response, but please be patient as the forum is worldwide and members live in different time zones.

Private Message (pm) is a tool to communicate with other members privately for instructions or just chatting. In order to do this you must have at least 15 posts. It's easy to obtain the posts by clicking on the New Members Introduce Yourself Here section and just welcome the new members (like we welcomed you).

To post a picture, either start a new thread or reply to one, type what you want to say and click on the 'paper clip' just above, this will open a window to your left, click on 'browse', go to your pictures, and double click on the one you want to post, click on 'upload' and then 'submit' your post.

If you like a comment or want to thank another member for their post, there's a 'like' button to the right and just below is the 'thanks' button.

As a new member you can use the New Posts link at the top of the info bar. It's a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.

When you are ready to leave the forum just click on "Quick Links" and click 'mark forums read', this will clear your screen for when you log on again.

Post your vin in the Vehicle Data Card Request section to get a data card (options on your car) free.

As a member you have the privilege to vote and/or enter our Ride of the Month competition, we welcome new SLKs to compete and new members to vote.

If you have any questions/comments please let us know and we will be happy to help you.

Thanks for joining our SLK family!

Welcome from Kentucky, USA! I'm 6' and pushing in at a combo athletic/comfy 200 lbs, and I feel like slipping into my SLK55 is like sliding on a nice pair of leather driving gloves. It just fits...completely worth the extra effort of getting out of it. :smile:

That's quite possibly the best description I've read on the fitment/comfort. Nicely done!
