Hi
My name is Mark & I'm in the UK
I've just bought my wife a 2007 SLK280 so thought I'd join this worldwide group to hopefully extract maximum pleasure out of SLK ownership :smile:
My hobbies are motorcycling ( currently running a 2007 R1 ) , drumming & gym
I look forward to being a part of this group

Mark

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.

Good for you. I have an R170, older model than you, but check out the silicon spray and grease that your car uses and clean the roof mechanism if you have a spare moment, although I believe they are very reliable, just worth cleaning if you suspect might not have been done. In 18 months my R170 has been awesome. The later models are even better cars I bet, although I like the early version. Hope your motor will be a good one. The site has some good technical info. Regards Kevin
