new slk 350 owner Bristol UK
Quick introduction. I am Steve from the UK (as opposed to Helga from Sveden).
I have recently given up a rather fast kit car in search of something that I could use all year round and came up with the SLK as a solution. I purchased it in September and opted for a manual version for no other reason than I prefer the manual in the bends,
I have removed the rather outdated Audio 20 and replaced it with a Kenwood double Din sat nav and have added a DAB system to this as I like my music when off the throttle. Smart top has also been fitted.
Few areas I don't like - crap paintwork on the wheels (replaced 2), exhaust hangers rusting on an 8 year old car which appears to be a regular issue and, the worst offender, the heater blower fan not to mention the gearing of the 2nd gear.
Likes, sound of engine, performance, useability, handling (for a production road car), comfortable open top driving.
I'm looking forward to having it for my first summer but it is already part of the car family.
