Hi thanks for the add. Recently collected my eBay special. Seen better days and needs a bit of tlc and bits 'n' pieces. Turning into a winter project. Wife wondering How many packages are due to arrive (a few more yet, my dear).

Unfortunately about 100 miles into the trip and halfway home, it lost power on me. Luckily, I got to the hard shoulder. Switched it off and it started straight away. It struggled on times particularly on the hills - one of our greatest features in Wales, so feelings a bit mixed that day.

Seems I'm a victim of the infamous k40 issue, so that's on the shopping list too. Never mind, I got to love the the lazy way it makes progress so it'll be well worth the expense.

Lots of great how-to's on the site that have proved really useful identify and fitting the new parts - keep up the good work!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

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.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum
