Thank you for accepting me as a member of this group.
I own a 2002 SLK 230K with 43,000 recorded miles, and a 2005 CLK 240 auto coupe with 76,000 recored miles. Both are in Brilliant silver; the SLK's interior is Athracite leather with a wood and leather steering wheel and gear-lever whilst the CLK has a light grey interior. I bought both these cars at the beginning of February to replace two SAABs; one was a 2004 9-3 Vector sport auto which I part-exchanged for the CLK, and the other is a 1989 900 T16s 2dr turbo which has been completely rebuilt and modified by Abbott Racing Motorsport at great expense. The 900 is now in secure storage awaiting disposal - probably by auction - at a later date. I have owned three Mercedes at various times in the past - a 1965 230SL with hard and soft tops, a 190e 2.0 auto and then a W124 E320 coupe Sportline with a 5-speed gearbox.
I also own a 1978 BMW R455 restored and converted to R65 spec. and a 1977 Silk 700S Mk II which I am currently restoring.

A good suggestion is to read the Mercedes Benz SLK Forum - FAQ: vBulletin FAQ

It’s a good idea to use the 'search' feature before you post. There is a wealth of information here to help answer any questions you may have.

If you want to send a Private Message (PM) to another member, you’ll need 15 posts. A quick way is to click on the link below, and welcome new members.

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

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.

Hi Robin, 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 (and I see you're already planning to join the Cornish Byways Road Trip), just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post meeting plans there!

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.

We're also plotting where our UK members are - check out the thread for that here: SLKWorld UK & Ireland Members and Meeting Points Map - Please let me know if you'd like to be added to the map. :tu:

Thank you
Dave
