1999 MB SLK 230K
Hi, So we have been living in Spain on and off for 12 years now, the 'off' was when we used to 'winter' in Florida where we owned a condo.......a Camaro Z28 and a BMW 3.2 Z3 however last year we sold up in Florida and now live full time in Murcia Spain, and have recently acquired a 1999 SLK 230 K . It's a bit short on horses compared to the state side 'toys' but nonetheless fun to drive and the roof operation is 'fascinating' !
So far I have no issues, but it is good to hopefully have the support of this forum should things go wrong . New Toy.jpg MB SLK (2).jpg

Welcome Bazza, you don't need too many horses to enjoy driving in Spain, I'm sure. Always nice to have the optional roof. I hope your air-con works nicely. Mine does and I'm often glad of it. You'll find this a friendly and informative forum.

Hello and welcome!

I see you have the first gen R170 230K. They updated the 230K motor in 2000/2001 (?) that had a few more "horses" to play with. That one also got indicators in the side mirrors, colour-coded sills and improved the finish on the interior. They also changed the front bumper/foglights.

But I do like that colour, mine was a plain silver - a "default" Merc colour.... :rolleyes:

And an awesome backdrop!!! :cool::cool::cool:

NB. Keep an eye on the inside of your front tyres - they are susceptible of premature wear - on cursory inspection they can look absolutely fine!

As I found out only after getting under the car to drain the sump - I damn near shatt myself!!!

Hello and welcome Bazza.

My wife would happily steal your car for the colour! As commented above that’s a terrific backdrop for a “hello” snap!
