I have been dream about this car since it was launched in 2006 but could't afford an AMG version.

Now, 10 years later found an used unit, 2008/09 with 13,000 km. Mint condition. Chassis: WDBWK73W69F210088

I consider myself well knowledgeable in conducting maintenance in classic cars. I am an owner of a Jeep SW 1971 (Willys) and Jaguar E-Type 1963. This SLK is something I haven't dealt before... but looking forward to learn from this forum and share my experiences.

What-else can I say about me.... engineer, 37 yo, working in oil industry, single, living in the country side of Sao Paulo state.

I guess this is my introduction!
Cheers,
Fred

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.

Welcome!

Welcome Fred from Tampa Bay Florida! What a lucky SLK owner you are!
We just found a 32 AMG and it was like a needle in a haystack due to the budget limits we had.
Big congrats & here's to a long and happy relationship.
