^ If I had to consider getting an additional car as a 'daily driver' - it would have to be another SLK55, no contest. I enjoy driving it in the winter every bit as much as the summer.

Having said that, I keep hearing 'siren calls' from Jag F-Type 5 litre...

My daily is my SLK. Why drive a car you don’t like when you own one you do? Yes you’ll clock up more miles, pick up knocks and dings but you’ll have a smile on your face all the time you’re driving.
Italian cars are garage queens Mercedes are driving machines.
