    Quick sprint - 230slk v 430clk

    Ok I'm sorry...I tried to ignore this thread for a couple of days but damn it I just had to come back and look... Let me just spell it out one more time for you all... The story happened exactly as I said, I have no reason to lie about it as it really doesn't matter to me. At no point did...

    Quick sprint - 230slk v 430clk

    Yeah I'm really c******g my pants here. Anyone with half a brain (which lets face it counts out most of you who've posted in this thread) can see there is nothing tangible written here as far as a cop or a court is concerned. Hey...heres an idea you moron..why don't you draw the polices...

    Quick sprint - 230slk v 430clk

    Heya howard...this is the 'road rage/incidents/wins forum isnt it?? I posted a simple story about a 30 second sprint against another car which was supposed to be just a fun story - for my troubles I was insulted and called a liar. The story was true..I can't help it if you can't deal with that...

    Quick sprint - 230slk v 430clk

    True. A big well done for pointing that out like all the others in this thread. Straight line standing start the slk would be slaughtered no contest. But thats not how it was. On this occasion i had the drop on him and he either couldnt keep up round that curve due to drift or whatever or he...

    Quick sprint - 230slk v 430clk

    What can I say - just telling you how it was!! It was a coupe clk not the ragtop, yes he was going for it down the straight but like I said I just carried on when I got to the corner - my point being that on this occasion an slk was quicker round that particular corner - I cant say if or how...

    Quick sprint - 230slk v 430clk

    Well let me see...he was right up my **** one minute....i hit the curve at about 120 and still accelerating....then he wasnt there!!! I wasnt racing him either...just seeing how fast I could take that curve...obviously a little faster than an overweight clk. :bannana:

    Quick sprint - 230slk v 430clk

    I was coming off the m25 on the Watford junction which is a long sweeping right hander probably about 1/2 to 3/4 mile length. Clk was right behind me as I exited m25 and we punched it down the clear slip road...I was beginning to lose him down the straight but he disappeared altogether when we...

    The New Audi TT

    Love it or hate it the old TT was a winning formula, stylish and hugely popular... do you really think Audi are going to stray this far from that kind of iconic path?? Very unlikely! As already stated in this thread this looks like any one of 20 or so modern small hatchbacks out there at the...

    Engine Underpowered

    I learned something the hard way whilst getting my 'speed pic' - always remember to put the roof and windows up before reaching terminal velocity - it was a cold day and I didn't get the use of my right ear back for about an hour!! :crazy:

    Resetting auto gearbox memory without disconnecting battery..

    The US forum site is down at the moment but when its back up I'll post a link to the thread which gives a longer explanation of how it works... but in short its to do with throttle body adjustment on 'drive by wire' throttles that adapt to your driving and supposedly will work on any car with...

    Thinking about buying SLK32 AMG

    The slk is an interesting car regarding image..nearly everyone has a slightly different take on it. Personally I see nothing girly about my R170...and freinds who crack on about 'hairdressers car' soon go into fast reverse after actually driving it. Also Joe Publics perception of the car is...

    Resetting auto gearbox memory without disconnecting battery..

    Found this on the US MB slk forum... was a little scepticle at first until loads of guys reported that their cars were quicker off the line, changed gear at more optimum points etc, so I tried it and it does indeed seem to work! The long way to reset the gearbox memory is to disconnect the...

    "As new" SLK 230-value?

    If you look around at the prices being asked for low milage models you'll see that it differs quite substantially from most of the book prices. While book prices indicate £12.5k for a 99T 230 with average milage, in reality these cars are still advertised and going from £11k to over £15k. Best...

    SLK Carbon Fibre Roll Bars anyone???

    These are the standard R170 slk roll bars wrapped in silver carbon fibre, available in any shade of cf though I understand - beats both the standard and much overdone chrome look i think, plus has the advantage that you're not altering your car with crucial non oem parts as far as the insurance...
