Hi Folks!

I'm a new member in SLK Forum and recently bought a SLK 350 -05 with 95K km. I sold -04 Z4 last autumn, and as always, I was again infected by cabriolet fewer in February. This is my first Merc after serious of convertible BMW's (Z4, 1-series, 325i) and I am very happy about my choice!

You might wonder what's the fun having a convertible in up north. Well, the driving season begins approximately mid April / early May and continues up to September. During the season I drive top down every single possible moment and enjoy the wind in the cabin. Nothing is more fun than lowering the windows and keeping wind deflector in the trunk when driving either on boulevards in Moscow downtown or speeding on a highway. I'm usually driving 10 - 15K kms per season including couple of trips to Helsinki, Finland (2,5 K kms roundtrip).

I wish I can find interesting tips and read good stories of your SLK experiences!

Best Regards,

Pentti

Hi Pentti, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

One of our mods will be along shortly to "officially" welcome you but in the mean time here are 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.

Terve, Pentti! Welcome from Oulu. Hope the weather in Moscow is a bit better than over here; we got about 5 cm more snow last night...
