Good evening everyone

A new UK member here who who just dipped their toe into the world of Mercedes with a SLK200. Quite different from my previous V8 twin turbo Range Rover, but so far loving it..

Previously owned a BMW Z3 and an MG. Looking to hold on to the '200 for a few years and apart from changing from the 16' to 17' OEM wheels am very open to suggestions on sensible modifications (not insurance cranking ones!)

Looking forward to participating..

PS very similar to this one - I'll post my own photos soon

Welcome from Madrid...

First please update your location and vehicle (year?: 1996-2016, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.


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.
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.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes from around the globe. Kingronnie - just across thuebridge from you in South Wales - Chepstow
Chepstow's lovely. The first time I drove an SLK was in Chepstow (a 350 being sold by the Ssangyong garage). Went for a blast around the hills next to the river on one of the hottest days of the year. I didn't buy that one, but it's why I now own a 350. Happy memories :grin:
