No longer a lurker
I'm a spanking new member - finally legit after a couple of years of lurking. Thanks for all the help with various things that have come up. I hope as a member I can provide the same kind of help to others.
About me? Well, as my bio says, I'm just a dork in Seattle in love with my 2001 SLK230. I bought the car in 2007 after not having a car for 13 years. The engine was in excellent condition with about 50k miles but the interior was filthy and the air intake cover was cracked. I had it detailed and repaired the intake cover -- boy was she beautiful.
I had to leave town for a couple of years and sold the car to my sister who left it under a tree and did no maintenance on it. I just got it back and am in the process of undoing some of the damage. It's covered in tree sap and bug excrement and is in need of maintenance. Various bulbs are burnt out, there is a chip in the transponder ring around the ignition cylinder, the trunk struts need replacement ... so much to do...
Since 2007, I've owned a few Benzes and loved them all (2000 ML320, 2001 ML320, 2006 CLK55 AMG, and 2007 ML350) but none as much as I love my SLK. I plan to keep her forever. <3
