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

Mods you should think about doing to your SLK:
Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
  • Post your VIN (or VIN of a car you're looking at) in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on the car).
    FREE!! How to get a free data card!
  • 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 individual’s post that you like. This saves you having to comment.
  • New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link in the info bar towards the top of the screen 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.
  • Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
Thank you
Dave

Not that I am impulsive or anything but....I took my car back into the paint shop again....I didn't like the whole black roof. I saw a picture of a black roof online and thought it looked really nice, but in person...it looked like something from 1970...so I am having the pillars repainted the same color of the car and only the very top will be black...pictures to follow
Another thing that I seem to be having problems with is finding rims and tires that I like. I like a "fat butt" look with extra wide tires in the back, but from the forum threads, there seems to be so many opinions on what works. I am like a little old man and really only drive to the grocery store so I don't need race track tires, just something that looks nice.
Of course, what looks good is all subjective!!

Hi
Good day
Welcome from
Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA.

I always thought a black roof would be nice & was contemplating about it.

Luckily, you say otherwise after it was painted black.

Mind if you post more pictures of your your black roof?? so as to convince me that it is not nice 100%.
As for the rims, maybe you should try wheel spacers as I am also contemplating about it.
I saw many in eBay for about USD 100 for 30mm for two rear wheels.
Anyone has opinion on wheel spacers??

Thank you & have a nice day.

Back in the saddle again..the week I joined this forum, I was diagnosed with cancer(multiple myeloma). They quickly did all tests and immediately started me on chemotherapy. It was hell for months, but as of today, I am in remission and feeling great. Now I can enjoy little things like this forum again...I enjoy this forum and all the pictures.
