My SLK was born today!

Well my SLK350 isn't here yet, but I got the VIN number today from my Sales Advisor. He said the car is at status B5 which means Production Complete (two weeks early)!

I am relieved to report that the VIN does NOT end in 666!! Now, I'm not superstitious, but I worry about VINs because in 1999 I bought a new car from a reputable Japanese manufacTurer with a VIN ending in 666. This car was a HUGE lemon and was eventually repurchased by the manufacturer. The settlement agreement does not allow me to reveal the manufacturer's name. But I can say that before it was declared a lemon, some of the parts replaced under warranty within the first two years were: water pump, moonroof, headlight assemblies, stereo, alternator, transmission, clutch, motor mounts, etc. I forget the rest of the problems.

So the moral of the story is, stay away from cars with too many 6s in their VIN

woa! Is that your real VIN? How has the car treated you so far?

Maybe the "F1" broke the evil spell!
