Sold my SLK... Thanks SLKWorld!

Hi all,

I have just sold my 07 SLK280 for about 60% of the purchase price. Well, it's already a good deal given the current 2nd hand market in Hong Kong. After selling my SLK, I may not be visiting SLKWorld that often!

I would like to thank everyone in SLKWorld, everyone here is so gentle and kind. The forum is one of the most lively that I've ever been.

Good luck and let's continue to enjoy our ride in good health!

Cheers.

Good luck with you next vehicle choice. Always sad to see members move on. There's still a great core of original "die hard" members, and a constant infusion of new enthusiastic SLK owners to this site.

Is that just while you wait for your R172 - good luck with it, and don't forget to call back and post some pics of it.

Will certainly post some pics and my experience on Audi TT...

There are three for me to choose from - Silver, Meteor Grey and Black. I choose Meteor Grey because Silver is quite common in HK, and it's difficult to keep a black car clean.

Yes, post here often, and tell us about the Audi. One thing about it you will like (I think) is the AWD it has.
