Just a quick shout out for the forum on www.slkworld.com !
Its a great forum with the advantage of a Merc mechanic helping with DIY. I've had some good help with resolving niggling glitches and basic DIY.
We get together a couple of times a year, mainly in North America and UK, although we have members who meet up in several EU countries and a couple of guys in the UAE.
By the way , we have a meet in the UK on Easter Sunday to crash around empty back roads on the Yorkshire Moors. http://www.slkworld.com/united-kingdom-region/
End of shout out !
