Hi all, after months of searching I've managed to track down a SLK 350 with the options and colour that I want.
I pick her up on Friday afternoon and I'm really looking forward to getting to know her (and you all) better.
She's a 2005 auto in black with red leather- pictures to follow.
I'm currently based in Aberdeen but I'm from Renfrewshire.
Cheers
Gordon

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.

Welcome to the forum from Glasgow.

I wonder... are there any SLK club meeting here in Scotland? It seems there are a few Scottish based people here as new members.

Does anyone know?

Hi Gordon, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

James, I don't think there's been a meet there this year (otherwise I would have put it into the 2016 UK Meet Calendar). I'm sure there was one sometime towards the end of last year, but I can't remember the details.

If you're interested in meeting other members, please feel free to propose something with a new post in the UK Region thread, and I'll add it to the calendar. :D

Thanks Dave.

I'll need to post a bit more before qualifying to message others.

And I think that i should probably get a car too before trying to revive a meeting programme.

Which raises the question of how local branches get started and manage to keep going.

James, just 2 more posts (and give the system time to refresh) and you'll be able to PM people. Why not go and welcome just a couple more people now, so you'll be able to PM (and edit your own posts) when you need to?

In the Midlands, we don't have anything sophisticated or coordinated, other than posting proposed meets in the UK Region section whenever one of us decides it's about time that we arranged another meet.

Anyway, I'll stop hijacking Gordon's welcome thread now, and let others get back to welcoming him instead. :D
