Quick Tour

We jumped into the SLK yesterday and did a quick tour of the Llano Estacado (staked plains) in West Texas....did little circle around Lubbock of about 100 miles. I was really happy (and a little surprised) with the top down road manners of the roadster. We did have the wind screen up and were not bothered at all by any buffeting. We ran into some showers so the top went back up and the car was as quiet as a mouse at all speeds. We also liked the Sirius radio as this is new to us. Before buying the SLK, I had thought that road trips would not be a good thing, but yesterday may have changed my mind somewhat. Now, if we can figure out some way to get all my wife's travel gear in the trunk?????

One thing.....if we are going 300-400 miles, I think we will have to get a small cushion for our bony old bottoms in the firm seats.

All in all, I was extremely impressed.
