Hello to all, great to be part of this site. My name is Craig and I recently purchased a 2012 SLK AMG, my first V8. She's second hand and I'm just learning my way around her.

The car has a few little issues, which surprises me after only 20k miles. I look forward to picking the brains of this vast number of people :wink:

Cheers Craig

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.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

Hi Craig, 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, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there! :tu:

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.

Finally, we also recently started plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map

Thank you
Dave

Registration is a document only and we are advised not to carry it with us.


Most of us keep it in a drawer so secret even we can't find it.
Insurance doc shows licence plate not vin.


It's 'cos we're special0:)

Hi Craig, welcome from the Wirral.


We have a free to enter monthly competition.
Entry is open from the 1st to the 15th of every month. You simply post a reply with 3 photos.
After the 15th we usually open a poll for members to vote on their favourite.
Here's the main thread:
ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum


This month's entries:
http://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submissions-voting/412769-february-2017-slkworld-com-ride-month-competition.html


A quick view of the UK meets and short breaks:
http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/411649-2017-new-uk-members-spring-edition.html
The two closest to you items from last year are in there.
A night drive through Blackpool illuminations and the Lake District tour. Have a look how they went.


Hopefully your gremlins are small ones and quickly fixed.


Maybe see you at a Cheshire meet. Tend to keep them close to the M6 for ease of access but A road routes can be found.

Hello @Avel Du, thanks for the warm welcome. I will definitely consider joining one of the meets, it will be nice to catch up with such like minded people.

I have a few niggles, but will drip feed them as questions, need more thread research first ?

When using search it's best to start with 'SLKWorld.com' as this gives forum related results.


The R172 threads are still growing but you might find R171 threads that cover similar topics.
