HI all,
Just brought the car home from Lincolnshire to North Essex. Great drive and very glad to have finally got my dream car after 57 years. Wheels will need a refurb though, so any reputable contacts gladly appreciated, along with a garage to maintain this beautiful thing! Good to be along, look forward to meeting you all. will upload decent pics when time allows.
Noel

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.

Hello Noel!

Welcome to SLK World!!

I recently bought a 2005 SLK200 Last week for the first time.

I gather you're from North Essex. What's your exact location and how far are you willing to travel?

Welcome from Chippenham, Wiltshire.

That is a seriously good looking ride you've got there. I'm sure you'll enjoy the SLK life.

Hi Noel, and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)

As Jeff has already mentioned above, it would be great if you could add your location and car details into your forum profile, please (instructions included in Jeff's post above). It helps others to help you whenever you post or have any questions in future. Thanks! :tu:

Thanks for all the kind greetings - shame it's the coldest week of the winter! Looking forward to getting the smartTOP as it looks like a very good option for the roof, then getting the wheels off to re-furb, and other tinkering to be done. Plenty of road trips on the horizon, but have to get a +4 Morgan up to the Highlands in June first with the quadcopter on the luggage rack! Comes to something when you have to fly your luggage up to the hotel separately.

Hi, good to hear from you. I'm from Kelvedon Essex, and in this car, willing to travel most anywhere!
