Hello
I'm a total newbie having only just picked up my SLK 280 (2008 model) in the last couple of days.
I'm really pleased with the car and looking forward to learning a bit more about it and what it will/won't do, hopefully this forum will help with that too.
Hope to touch base with other SLK enthusiasts, particularly those local to Nottingham and/or the East Midlands.
Regards
Paul

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.

Hi Paul, and welcome from another East Midlands member (near Leicester)! :)

As Andy (ZeroZero) has already implied, there are quite a few of us based around the Midlands, including a few other members around Nottingham too, who I'm sure will be along shortly to welcome you! :D

We like to meet up from time to time, especially if it gives us an excuse to have a cooked breakfast, and then chat about our SLKs, and cars in general too... if you'd like to join us sometime, just keep an eye on the UK Region section, as we post any plans to meet there. :tu:
