    Hi

    I've had my SLK for 2 months and altthough Im having a few teething probs, (slowly getting sorted) I'm loving this car.

    Now I've bought into the 'Mercedes brand' Im already considering my next Mercedes, a SLK R171, and then eventually, a big comfy saloon to retire with.

    I can't stop looking at other Mercedes cars. I didn't realise there were so many variant models.

    Yep. My SLK has had its rear arches re sprayed before purchase but I don't think it will stop the rust. I will make sure the inner arches are clear and slap some grease around them ( ooooh er matron) until I get it sorted properly next year . . . . If there's anything left of the arches after winter!
    To be honest it didn't look that bad, just some peeling paint! :shock:
