Silver Kompressor

Yesterday afternoon, outside Chicago, I pulled up alongside a silver SLK
with a couple out for their first top down ride of the
season. We exchanged complements and I handed them
an SLKWorld card. Maybe we'll see them online!

Cool. I gave out SLKworld cards at the Mercedes dealer yesterday. LOL

It is nice to be able to hand out such a nice looking card that represents a quality place like this! People are always impressed with the cards.

The site has (had?) them. I received mine when ordering a cool
SLK hooded fleece jacket from the SLK store.

Good scouting, I'm sure they'll be along soon.

PM bill about cards to show your interest. He may look at doing another batch if enough show interest.

I don't see that many SLKs in my area (central Virginia) Maybe that's good. There is a blue SLK 280 here in the neighborhood. Haven't had the chance to speak. I see as many R170s as R171s. Almost every morning I see a beautiful FireMist Red R170 zoom past work heading towards Fort Lee.

Yeah, the Firemist Red is a pretty color on a SLK. (I might be a little biased though...) I kind of think cards would be a good idea. I never really noticed many around before I got mine. However, I have had my car for almost a month now, and I have seen 7 SLK's around my part of town in that time. I have waited around for a little time at a couple of these, but finally had to leave each time before seeing the owner return. Something to leave with the car would be cool.

I just made a trip from the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area to the Indianapolis area and saw ONE SLK R171 the whole trip (other than mine of course )
