Belated greetings from stormy west Scotland....

I say belated as it's taken me 3 weeks to negotiate the purchase of my first 320 V6...
My father has owned an R171 AMG model for a few years & I although I always admired it from afar, I wanted to wait for something that was a bit different from the ubiquitous silver or black colours so I got myself an R170 green (or what I would call petrol blue) with the 2 tone black & siambeige leather...
Very pleased & have a large smile on my face....

Yippee!!!!!

Welcome from Canada :smile:

Free Gift!: Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car).


https://www.slkworld.com/vehicle-data-card/67706-free-how-get-free-datacard.html

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 a wet North Hampshire - Feel free to post some pictures of Your SLK :tu:
~~ I wanted to wait for something that was a bit different from the ubiquitous silver or black colours so I got myself an R170 green (or what I would call petrol blue) with the 2 tone black & siambeige leather...
Very pleased & have a large smile on my face....
Yippee!!!!!
I also search far & wide for a V6 SLK that wasn't either Silver, or needed cleaning every day (ie: Black)..!!!

Anyway, enjoy Your new ride R)
