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 from the Wirral.

If you're thinking of getting to know folk the next SW meet in March may be just right for you.
It's the first ever SW meet and several newbies may be there.

Although not that location, the Donington meets might give an idea of how things go.
Here's the last one from there to whet your tastebuds:

We were all new and nervous once.
Whilst shyness may not disappear, getting to meet fellow SLKers is a pleasure.

You'll also find many of us are also bikers (your other interest).
I reckon as close as 50% may be, or have been bikers. SLKs draw them in.
That helps break the ice too!

If you fancy sharing a few shots of your car then post a reply with three here:
You'll have entered our monthly, free RoTM comp. and may even win a prize.

I'll leave it to @dbgrn to update you on the full UK scene but, should you attend any events I guarantee you will be back for more.

Enjoy your new ride. It's bound to make you smile.
See you on the road.

Hi Michele, and welcome to 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, although things are a little quieter during the winter months. 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
