    Afternoon everyone,

    I’m just wondering if there are any local meet ups in the Hampshire/West Sussex area for like minded individuals to meet up and admire each other’s cars, share advice and just enjoy being part of a community!

    There are always meet ups being arranged in the C class and A classes groups which I’m apart of but none for R230’s SL’s! That being said, I’m hoping there are meet up for a mixture of old and new and different models of Mercedes!

    It would also be good to meet the people on this forum who share advice and help each other save money on potential issues and anything else discussed! I’ve done lots of research online about my R230 SL500 but it’s always better to talk to fellow owners who have had more experience with these cars and can help out! Or just to get inspiration from others!

    Thanks,

    Ryan

    Great idea, I often go down to Crawley to visit friends, it would be great to meet new friends with a common interest. I would travel down for a meet...:D

    I was really cheesed off on my way to work this morning to see loads of beautiful classic cars off to a show. My guess was it was in Woolaton Nottingham. The temptation to turn around and throw a cough! cough! Sicky...:rolleyes:

    Crawly isn’t a bad place to meet up! I’m in Portsmouth so I’m not overly fussed where we meet up in the south. Gives me a chance to give the old girl a good run .

    As you said, it would be good to make new friends with similar interests! Or network with people who can potentially help with issues (people who own garages or good DIY’ers!)

    We had a small meet at the Hampshire Bowman last month, there’s quite a few members around the area. Best recommendation is to pick a date and location and then I’ll make it an”sticky” at the top of this section.

    Ah ok! We’ll I’ll look at the long range weather forecast and then suggest a Sunday morning some time! I’ll also get my SL500 booked in with PCS for a service and general once over before hand so she’s running as she should

    I'm potentially up for something in West Sussex. There used to be an occasional meet in Amberley, but it hasn't happened for a few years as far as I'm aware?

    Hi,

    I would be up for something. As above pick a date and venue and take it from there.
    Sunday is not always the best day for some but you ll never please everyone.
    Give it a go.

    That may have been something to do with the retro festival on at Newark show ground this weekend, by all accounts quite a big event this year with a lot of lovely vintage metal from all over

    Sounds obvious considering your name - but are you MBS Southampton? . Looking around for a specialist for my R230

    Maybe a breakfast or summer evening meet up at Mick's Burger bar at Portsdown hill would be a bit different
