Hello everyone,
I’m Bev and I have recently bought an R171 SLK350 in obsidian black with beige interior.
She was spec’d fully loaded from the factory with the exception of the AMG bodystyling package.
She has only covered 47k miles from new and appears to have been garaged all her life.
As for me, some of you will me already from the south west uk meets as I am married to Mugs
and have been to a few meets as a passenger in his 55 so I thought it was about time I joined in with
my own SLK.
I will be bringing my SLK along to the German day at castle coombe later this year so hope to meet
some of you there.
I’m looking forward to being a member of this forum

Hello Bev and welcome from Mersea Island, Essex, UK. I have met you and @Mugs at several meets. The car looks great by the way with its personalised number plate.
