I have owned a 2001 SLK 230 for several years and immediately registered on the site after purchasing it we were the second owners of that car and even now only have just about 81,000 miles on it. I did not however introduce myself or make use of the site before. I most recently purchased a 2007 SLK 350 and now find myself wanting to get more information and making use of the site. All that being said, the reason I updated to the newer model was that the 2001 was primarily my wife's extra car and whenever I drove it being 6 foot tall found it extremely uncomfortable with my knees up against the dash. Additionally, as much as I love the beautiful black 2001 SLK, I just don't have the time to keep it clean. It's garage kept but it's a dust magnet. We purchased the 2007 in white and being a little larger in the cockpit is now comfortable for me to drive. Looking forward to using this site as a resource for the 2007 SLK. BTW; the 2001 is listed for sale in Sacramento CA. I intend to put it in the Advertising area on this site in the next few days.

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.
