Hello all,

I just thought I'd tip my hat to you all and say hello . I've just bought a 2003 (52 plate) SLK 230K Tip Auto which I pick up tomorrow :D

When I say bought, I've actually traded in my 06 plate TT (no hairdresser jokes please) and got a couple of grand back. I live up in Aberdeen and am a CNC Machinist by trade and spend my frre time playing with cars, when not too hung over.




I also have 2 VW camper vans from the Late '60s which I seem to be rebuilding all the time!

Please forgive the crazy leopard paint work :shock:

Hope to catch you about and maybe have some useful input once I get to grips with my SLK,


Cheers,
Paddy

Welcome Paddy - nice SLK, and an interesting brace of VWs.

How is the leopard colour scheme described on the V5?

I took it along to the local DVLA office and tried to convince them to put leopard down but they called it multicoloured :(.

Cheers Guys,
Paddy

On the plus side Paddy, that gives you total licence for any changes that might catch your whim in future!

I am impressed that DVLA in Aberdeen came up with a word with that many syllables!

I tried to get DVLA to put my Bornite S600 down as blackberry, but they wouldn't have it. It either had to be brown (yuck) or purple. But I now have two V5s one says purple and the other says brown cos they got all mixed up.
