New 2008 SLK55 AMG!

Ok, it's just a teaser for now, I'll add some more crappy pics to the post later tonight. My flight home this morning was cancelled and I had to scramble to find another semi-early one, so I didn't get into the dealer until 45 min before close, and he had another delivery to do. So, I stared at the car for 30 min, sat in it, started it up, and filled out some initial paperwork. I didn't have my real camera with me, so I snapped a few cell phone pics...it'll have to do for now.

Unless I come to my senses or something happens, I should have it at home mid-day Monday.

Damn that's a fine looking car!
I bet when you fired the engine up it got the adrenalin pumping? It's a shame you couldn't get it for the weekend though, not to worry plenty of more weekends to look forward to!

It's going to be one LONG Sunday. Congratulations in advance MDLSLK55.

That's quite a decent pix coming from a cell phone camera. 3MegaPixels on the cell phone camera?

Yep, and a lot of Photoshop.

Congrats MLDSLK55,

You are going to love it. Hopefully, you have some good weather right now. Hurry up and get that 1k miles out of the way, at WOT it sounds amazing.

PS. I love your color and options...

Congrats! She looks amazing.

Do me a favor get them to rip that dealer badge back off again, i can't think of anything that can ruin the lines of a car quite so fast.

I agree with Dan. The dealer badge has to go, unless they pay you a monthly fee (like $500) to keep it on.

The interior shots looks very nice too.

So I actually stopped at two places in public tonight, and a total of 6 people commented on the car...the best being the cute blonde (with her bf in the car) that said "You have a really nice car". I also got a few comments and questions on the color, one guy said he thought he was tripping because the car changed color 4 times as I pulled in to park.

Anyway, two coats of zaino later and waiting until it's dark (again) to take pics:
