Hello world..

..from the (not so) sunny Isle of Wight. Which is a shame, because it's a holiday today.

2006 SLK280 auto, bought on Friday. Blue outside, light grey inside. Only done about 150 miles so far - all going well.

Welcome from NE England. I used to race an OOD4 out of Lymington, and most of our races started from the RYS at Cowes, IOW. Longish drive every Friday afternoon.

Here's a pic. Note mudflaps!



Mostly the spec I wanted, because the wheels aren't too big. Roads around here are quite poor and I want to keep all my teeth. No COMAND, which is a shame, but the standard radio is very impressive. Airscarf, heated seats, wind deflector should keep it useable top-down all year.
