Hi Folks,

I own a silver 2002 SLK 320, the R170 model. I love the car to bits. I think it is the sleak looks plus that V6 engine and mix of good handling and that roof (a bit of a disaster at the moment but I am working on it).

The car has cruised around Europe and been used for day to day commuting and proven itself to be a trustworthy steed. It is in need of a little care and attention now so I am settling down to fixing all the issues that have built up.

It was one of the R170s built in South Africa in 2002 so it has some build issues e.g. rusty wings, corroded wheels. I am working to bring the car back up to a good standard of repair without breaking the bank.

Terry

Hi Terry and welcome from Suffolk.

Looks like the car is in the right hands with someone who is prepared to spend a bit of time and effort getting it up to scratch. Don't forget to post some before and after photos :smile:

Hi Gary,

I'll get some shots.

NB This isn't a new car for me. It has been the wife's car for 10 years. Now that she is ferrying her ancient Mum around (in my car), I am driving it more and more. Time to spruce it up . . .
