Dear Forum [users] I've been reading you for half a year or so. Why would I? 'Cos i wanted to own SLK.
I stopped my wanting 10 days ago
Because I own it now
It's 2005 R171 200 Kompressor Iridium Silver on 17" rims and pretty much stock. The only tuning I did so far is the MagLite 3D torch in a reach of a hand for unusual situations
Update: there actually is one non-stock thing on the body, who will notice it first? First one to guess would recieve a postcard from me, the real one
Well, despite I knew there are almost no smooth tarmac in my city http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odesa
(after every winter season) and my back will hurt of going everyday on such a stiff suspention and low-profile rubber I also understood that there are almost no other car that would give me the same joy of driving it and be a Merc at the same time
I'm a student so why do I need another car?
After W211 E200K (which still remains in my family) it handles like a Kart, damn I love this feeling!. W211 after SLK feels like S-class
I really wanted to post more info but I started to write this post at one time then made a break and finished in the evening so a lot of things i forgot.
If you have some questions feel free to ask, if you have smth else, feel free to hmm.. smth else)
Enjoy the pics, even if there's nothing unusual for an SLK, I'm not even sure whether my rims are rare(are they?), but in Ukraine the car is rare headturner for sure, there are 32 SLKs for sale in Ukraine (total 170s and 171s) and IMO 10 to 20 171s are with their happy(or not) owners and 100% info there are one 171 in black colour with the same rims, thank God 400km away), I've seen 2 171s in my city both driven by chicks.
I remember what I forgot! Ukraine is the country of prejudices so SLK is concidered as a chick's car but i dont give a duck
IMO this is jealous to say such a things
(Strange thing, but nowadays chicks prefer SUVs but SLK is still has this curse)
My previous cars were Daewoo Lanos(Chevy lanos for US and Europe is the same), Mitsubishi Pajero Sport (Montero Sport for US and hispanic countries), Mercedes-Benz W211 E200 Kompressor
BTW I call her Silver Arrow (i guess it's one of the most popular names for silver mercs, isn't?)
Sorry for such a long post, hope you enjoyed reading it.
