I haven't bought one yet!!!!....still very much in the shall i shan't i stage😫.
I've had a lotus Elise for the last 16 years and a tvr griff 500 before that.
I like everything about the idea of getting a post 2011 55.....but everyone i speak to who i consider to know about cars usually has an intake of breath through clenched teeth when i mention the change😕.
I know it won't be as dynamic as the lotus...but i no longer drive round on opposite lock anynore....not intentionally anyway🙄. Any thoughts out there?. Nellie

Cell phone emojis don't work here. You have to use the forum-supplied emojis as found to the right of the reply text box you are using for your reply. They show up as nonsense like this 83*&^%Gjg7fr if you don't.

To be quite honest, in a previous post I mentioned how I wasn't even looking at MB's till Schwarzie winked at me as I drove by

Having had her for nigh on 3 summers now, my personal opinion is that I like the R172 way better than previous iterations.

Course I'm biased because she's in my garage now but still............

Over the last few years I got fed up driving and just let the wife drive all the time. I had a Suzuki volusia Trike just as a toy doing very few miles a year. 2 yrs ago my wife hired an Audi R8 V10+ for me for my birthday....... I fell in love with driving again! I searched for various cars to buy and finally settled on a Porsche 987 2.7 I soon found everyone, but everyone wanted to race me and whilst the Porsche cornered wonderfully it really wasn’t that fast. I soon regretted not getting the 3.4. Fast forward to this year and my wife sold her Chelsea truck co. Jeep Wrangler and put the Porsche in px on a Lexus NX 300h. I went back to the drawing board and considered a TT, a Jag XK and a Slk 350. But when the slk55 came up....well that was it! Still learning about it, still gazing at it, still reading everything I can about it. Wonderful.
As mentioned on my intro I have had some very interesting vehicles and some pretty crap ones
1972 E type in Old English White with a Webasto roof, a wonderful car.
Triumph TR6 in yellow, ran well only intermittently
Two BMW 2002’s
BMW 3.0 z4 in Merlot and a fair few others.
I do like the 55 though.

Just prior to my 2010 - 55 I had a 1963 AH3000 that I restored from the ground up. Prior to that a 1970 Lotus Europa. Had lots of fun with both. However, I would not go back to either....................
