I just purchased a 1998 slk 230 hard top convertible here in VICTORIA B.C. this month for my wife for Christmas. she doesn't know it yet. I am having a hard time keeping it a secret. she has always wanted a two seat sports car. The price was right so i checked the car out. it has 91000 k's on it i'm impressed! This car is work of art and a pleasure to drive. there seems to be more than a few of these for sale in the Vancouver/Victoria area.i have a funny feeling this isn't going to be the last one i buy.
thank you for letting me join the forum

Welcome to The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

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.

Thank you

Hi Don,

Welcome from Wirral, England.

What a great present! Great intro too.

If you're lucky and leave you wife's gift out of sight, there may be two when you go back.

SLKs are like coat hangers.

You think that you have a single one,

Next thing you know there's two of the blighters.

Saves the battle over the key in the morning.

Here's a link to Canadian regional threads:
Canada Region - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

And if you check out my signature below, you'll find a diy link for some of the issues/improvements.

(Wonder how dropping hints during 2017 for your own SLK will turn out)
