Hi from South West Scotland . I'm looking to buy an SLK as a change from my usual Audi TT;s , I want a convertible and the Audi ones don't really do it for me . Will be searching this forum for tips on buying , I'm fairly handy with a spanner and do my own servicing /repairs etc . The 350 or 280 is what I'm after with auto box and pre 2006 .I've seen a 350 on ebay that has the paddle gear change on the steering wheel when in sport mode....any advice on this much appreciated . I am currently running an A180cdi auto which is great but I would like a bit more fun ...Thanks in advance ...Kip

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.

I am a new member also, and have been able to use this forum for several issues already.
I got my first Mercedes a few weeks ago, 2002 SLK230 Kompressor, if you are looking for a convertible, I love the hard top.
