Slk55 amg

Hi all,

New member here. I've taken the plunge and am about to take delivery of a 2007 SLK55 AMG with all the toys. Somebody please reassure me that I'm not insane

Congratulations - you will be insane with joy as you drive it.

I'm older so I drive fast as I have less time left to waste.

I hope you are not insane, because I am right behind you. I test drove my first 55 last weekend and am so sold. I was considering a 32, but there really is no comparison. Performance and comfort beyond anything in this class. Now I just have find one at the right price. Which from all that I can tell, is heading down. Price of gas no doubt. I saw one sell in the SF BayArea a few weeks ago for $21k but other than that, none have sold from private parties in California for some time.

I just bought one a few weeks ago. I can't tell you how much fun it is to drive. It is very fast and handles like it's on rails. The care is beautiful and it turns heads everywhere I go. I have a grin on my face just thinking about it.
Don't expect it to be a practical family car it is not. It is your personal toy to enjoy because you deserve it. Buy it and have a blast.

My motorcycle is feeling neglected, because this car is so much fun to drive.
