Hi everyone from Warwickshire UK
Great forum that helped me decide I could afford to run and maintain an SLK. So I took the plunge and bought a lovely 98 230SLK in Imperial Red - well I always wanted a red sports car.
It's a dream come true and I went into the purchase with eyes fully open. The car hadn't been on the road for 6 months so I suspected the battery was u/s and the puddles of thin oil on the garage floor from the boot area I guess mean I'll be rebuilding hydraulic cylinders shortly. Replaced the battery today and managed to keep everything working ok and even the radio unlocked so it's "Me 1 Merc 0" at the moment
Just waiting for the roof cylinder seal kits off ebay before I find out whether I'm on a winning roll
Thanks for all the great information on here - hopefully I can give something back in return as my experience grows
