New Member - I love my benz! (56k warning...)

Hi everyone... I'm so glad to have found this site... I purchased my 2001 SLK 320 recently with only 30K miles on it. Most of my cars have been V8 Mustangs... now that I've driven an SLK, I'm a Benz man now. There's just no comparison.

I have so many questions right now... I've found answers to many of them in these forums, but be prepared to see my dumbfounded posts for the stuff that I can't find.



Here are some pics:

Welcome to the forum Eric! Folks are asking where you're from. Even photoshopped your plates give it away (I only know this because I lived in FL for a while and bought my R170 there, too.) But before I saw the plates, the first pic gave it away for me. You can never mistaken screened in pools. We had one too in Deltona. Anyway...welcome and enjoy your time here. We are good folks!

Are you actually in Orlando, or one of the surrounding communities? I used to be a tech at WonderWorks! Excellent birth control environment.

Ha! I'm actually in Orlando... East Orlando actually, not too far from UCF. One of my good friends was a grunt at WonderWorks for a while... she did it for extra cash. Kelly is her name, and she's a smokin' hot blonde.

There were a few distractions over there , but "Kelly" isn't ringing a bell. I was there from Apr '05 to Feb '06. Just a lay-over to pay bills.
