New (???) addition to the MB SLK World

Hello to all. Nick Velez here in the Dallas/Fort Worth sector of Texas. As of February 28, 2011 have discovered the thrill of owning/driving a 1999 SLK 230 (bright silver w black interior). Purchased from a local auto wholesale lot, 74k on the odometer, and just as advertised....within the first month...have had to purchase a new key and remote from local dealer ($246.00) and I am now looking to rebuild/replace the recently leaking top cylinders. Yea!! <sigh>

So far simply love this forum, as well as the SLK forum. You are all absolutely awesome and informative.

Welcome to Benzworld!

Sorry to hear about the repairs you need. The slk's are amazing to drive, but do have their quirks.

You can always get info from here if you need it.
