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

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

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 or to ‘edit’, 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/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
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.
FREE!! 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 first.

Hi Peter, and welcome to SLKWorld.com from the UK Midlands - Thanks for joining us! :)

I'm not sure what you mean by "plastic wings"... if someone else knows what you mean, perhaps they'll respond to help. Otherwise, can you explain with a little more detail (or perhaps a photo or link to an example of what you're referring to).


Davie's already covered the useful tips for using the forum, so no need for me to add them here too. :)

Thank you
Dave

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

You won't need plastic wings when you put the pedal to the metal you'll start flying without those darn wings! LOL

Hi Peter,

Welcome from Wirral, England.
Best to do the location/vehicle update right off the bat.

You'll only keep getting reminded until you remember to do it.

Plastic wings?
Do you mean the little pieces that go on the outside of the back wheel arches?

Know as pigs ears on here.

Or do you mean the chrome look fins that go on the front wings?

Or, do you mean that someone is making plastic replacement wings for the front when they go bad?

If it's any of the above, all that matters is that you like them.
It's your car and you'll never get 40,000 plus members to agree outside of
The SLK makes you smile.
The SLK forum is a good place.

Welcome to the forum. I have no idea what you are referring to when you mention the plastic wings. Please elaborate.

Tim
Hi Tim,

They are the things that attached to the front sides of the car that fit over the wheels, he is asking if they are available in fibreglass, google needs a USA / English translation service.

Hi from Wellingborough, Northants UK. This is a great forum where all your questions will be answered - but you gotta make sure we understand exactly what you are asking. Having said that, the make/model/year of your car makes a lot of difference to the answers you may receive. be specific, and enjoy this forum. As my friend @Avel Du often says, your choice of car gives 'more smiles per gallon' than any other marque.

Stuart,

Thanks for the explanation. In addition to the USA/English translation service, I think I need pictures too. >:D I'm not sure I still know what is being referred to.
