Also looking for a DFW group. All I have seen is the official MBCA which has a yearly fee. Might still join them for the benefits but I would really like to just find a group to drive and show with. A SLK specific group would be great!

Yes I've been looking for a group also but have only found the MBCA.
Maybe we should start our own?

I would love to though I am now moving out of the area at the end of the month. If you would like to start working on a online presence I would be glad to help. It would be great to have a group to meet with when I'm in town.

Bump for a somewhat old post.
New guy in the DFW area.
I'd love to know if there are any groups around the area also.

Why not try and get a meet going here:
Mercedes Benz SLK Forum - A Mercedes Benz Discussion Forum

If you get interest, maybe discuss forming a regional club.

I managed to use a bike club to negotiate a discount on parts with a local garage.
Once you get something like that, more folk join up.

Count me in! I'd like to get together with some SLK folks, and if we could negotiate discounts for members would be a +.

I'm in, although the Dallas (NTX) and Fort Worth chapters have great events and trips. Worth a shot. An SLK 350 won second or third in the favorite car contest at the recent Dallas picnic, even though there were some exotics there. A very old sedan won first place, deserved. The SLK wasn't as cool as mine, but I got there late (well, at the advertised start time, early birds got the good spots) and was down at the end and wasn't looked at much. Some had already voted.

I know that this is a very old and non active thread but I figured I would bump it. I just moved to the Joe Pool Lake area in South Dallas area. I am in need of a great shop that could help me maintain and do little customizations on my 05' SLK350. I would love to join a group as well if others are looking to meet for coffee or just to chill and talk about our cars.

I was looking more into a group meetup but if everyone finds a repair shop that is reliable, that would be great too!
