Smile Hey everyone!

Hey guys how's it goin?

I'm new here, but when I tried to sign up today, I discovered that I actually signed up in August of 06. So I guess apparently I'm not new?

Either way I thought it'd be safer to just say "Hi!" since I don't think I've ever posted here at all!! I recognize some members here who are on other forums (I dunno if I'm allowed to mention the forums in case it seems I am tryin' to promote those) but it's nice to have a forum JUST for SLKs!!

I'm from Toronto, are there any others nearby? I know most of these forums people are predominantly from the US of A.

Anyways that's kinda a long "Hello" so thanks!

-Kelvin

Thanks!! The 280 is significantly faster! I LOVE it!! I mean there are noticable differences other than power. The suspension is stiffer and you feel much more as if you're sitting on the ground than in the 230 Coupe. The 230 Coupe has surprisingly comfortable suspension for a sportier car though. Also, since it's higher center of gravity, the tail is more loose and it drifts much easier than the SLK. The SLK however will grip turns soo much nicer! Also, I've driven an AT 350 and that felt pretty damn fast, but I'd really like to try one in MT one day!!

Hello Kelvin and welcome to SLKWorld!
We have a very multi-national group of members here, with several from Canada, so you'll feel right at home

What color is your SLK? Is that Caspian/Benitoite blue or Orion blue? Either way, it looks great..

Hi Kevin and welcome from one of the US members. There are lots of worldwide members here so it really isn't US centric like other forums I've seen. Good info and good people are here.

HAhah thanks guys!!! Yeah actually Ynot when you mentioned it on MBFanatics.org it reminded me of this place. Well, sorta...actually I thought it was a forum that I had not joined yet...when I tried to register my username, it said it was taken. I almost made a new one, but then I decided to request password first. Then I realized, holy crap I've been here before, but it somehow felt different!! If any of you guys ever come up to Canada (ie. Toronto, ON) say hello to us who are mostly on MBF!

Oh and Zinga it's Orion Blue It musta been the shade from the Pafica to my left that made it look slightly darker!

I recognize some of you from Benzworld or MBworld or maybe even MBCanada (before we moved to MBFanatics). Like Ynot and -1-. I recognize you guys!

That's b/c it is, it's been upgraded many times, thanks to Bill, Dan, Easty, and other mods on this site. It also has about 400 plus more members than when you last visited. It's the mods and members that makes this forum, many familiar faces, it'll feel just like home. Try clicking on the new post on the top page, it'll make your surfing much more enjoyable. I love Canada, but only on the west side, never been to Toronto.
