    Finally home. SLK ran beautifully all the way. Only a couple of quirks to investigate - no working cruise though no warnings on dash & fuse is fine, and big fist thump sometimes needed under passenger footwell to coax heater blower into action. AC pleasantly ice cold which was nice. I think the blue looks brill too and the near total lack of rust scabbing is very un-90's-Merc. Goes like a rocket too with the supercharger seemingly in perfect shape.

    Fly up to Scotland - happy to pick you up in your old Ypsilon (running great btw) & take you as far as any heap being sold by the Dodgiest Bastard of these climes.

    It's a new thing since it's been sat a couple of months, it worked fine last time I tried. 
    Iirc it's one with a limiter as well, is it in the correct mode is my stupid check question.

    Could the brake pedal (or clutch)  just be engaging slightly to disengage activation.
    Long shot but can you pull pedal up any with foot and see if cruise engages.
    Had an EOS where the pedal did not return fully, so initially thought brakes/calipers were seizing but was just pedal sticking and applying pressure.

    Thanks for doing the purchase and saving me from an inevitable divorce when I rocked up with another SLK.
