Hi Guys
I'm Cullers. Ex Royal Marine and current academic and psychologist. Next month, I am cashing in one of my smaller pensions and with it, I'm going to spend £4k and buy myself a Mercedes SLK. I know I'm not going to get a very new or very low mileage model but I have other things I need to sort as well. Sooo... I am hoping to get some pointers on what to look for, what to avoid and potentially a great deal.
Cheers guys

Moved your thread of of UK section to the new member introduce yourself section
Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

First please update your location and vehicle (year?: 1996-2016, model?: 32, 200, 230, 250, 280, 300,320,350,55) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t.
Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. Your profile is NOT updated in your ‘personal garage’.




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

... and because you don't yet have an SLK, you can add something like "Looking to buy an SLK for up to £4k" for your vehicle (in your profile), until you find the car you're looking for! :D

Hi and welcome from central Florida, USA and thank you for your service!

Just what some members of the forum need...a good psychiatrist!>:D

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.

Welcome to the club, even a bad psychologist would help! (You know who I'm talking about, OCD cleaning!)
