First things first.....thank you in advance for all the advice you give me...!!!
My name is Harry...couldn't sell my house so I bought a car for my dog and me...!
Very long story...but everyone has their own...!!!

This is the first SLK I've owned...it handles like a dream...95,000 miles....near perfect paint....mechanically excellent...and a very good price...I think...
several interior cosmetic issues & of course the infamous remote power lock and alarm issues....!
Again, thank you

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: 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.

Sounds like our household.

Can't wait for the photos.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

Thanks for updating your vehicle/location details.

It will make things easier when you post questions when you need help in the future.

You're in the heartland of active SLK members.
Your regional threads are here:
U.S. Florida - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

We started out with an '04 230 ourselves, also bought for our dog (sadly at the bridge now).
He enjoyed it so much.

There is a thread for R170 diy in my signature below.

The best mod, especially if you are taking a dog with you is the SmartTop:

You can get the heat out of the car before you even reach it.

Older cars need some tlc for the seals around the roof:

What can be better than photos of dogs in SLKs?

Putting them into the RoTM Competition, that's what :tu:
Free to enter, just post three pics in a reply in the thread below.
http://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submissions-voting/394345-november-2016-slkworld-com-ride-month-sponsored-windrestrictor.html
You could even win prizes.

SLKs make us smile.
Adding a dog into the mix?
PRICELESS!

Look forward to hearing more about the pup and the car.

Welcome from central Florida. I drove through Ellenton today. Got fuel at the Pilot station west of the interstate.

This is a place with lots of info and helpful people.
