Hi there fellow SLK owners!

My name is John, and I’ve just got myself a fully loaded SLK350 R171 on a 2004 plate. I recently did the AMG experience at Mercedes world, Brooklands. And what a day that was in the C63 AMG! That thing kicks like a mule!!? from that point on I had to own a quick affordable Merc. Which got me looking at the SLK350, and after the first test drive was sold on the gorgeous two seater. It just has me grinning every time I take her out. They maybe branded a hairdressers car, well all I can say is there must be plenty of happy hairdressers who get to work early!??
I plan to sort a few bits on it to Put my own stamp on it.

Breaking the boredom of driving, Can’t wait for the next venture out!!??

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.

Much appreciated!

Thanks Jeff, I’m sure I’ve got a lot to learn about SLK ownership, but just want to learn everything about this amazing sports car. I’m looking forward to browsing your site and I’m sure the wealth of information will be very useful as my car didn’t come with an owners handbook which I’ll be sourcing very soon.

Many thanks
John
