My new 2013 SLK55 purchase

Friday afternoon, I bought a brand-new 2013 SLK55 off the showroom floor, trading in my 2009 one. This car is terrific -- looking and performing. It is loaded with every available option, including the Designo piano black interior; the paint is metallic Diamond White and the upholstery is porcelain white leather.

Pictures attached!

Beautiful Car!!!!!!! Very similar to mine. Keep up on the seats however, they can stain and stain rather quickly. Do a search under "dye transfer" to learn more about keeping that gorgeous leather looking proper.

Congrats. Like the color combo. Keep us posted with updates and experience with the new model. I'm going to start looking for a red one to match my '09 next year.
