Late Intro

Hello from Southern California (Sun Diego).

Sorry for the late intro.
I really found this forum very informative.
I used it extensively to research and learn about the SLK.
It helped me tremendously in my decision to buy my 2005 SLK55 AMG.
I felt that with the right information I was able to make a good purchase decision and it was also financially sound.

I actually looked at the R170 back in 2000 but ended getting a Porsche Boxster instead. Prior to that I have a convertible Corvette, a Mitsubishi 3000GT (my wife had the Dodge Stealth), and a Toyota Celica. So I feel like I'm progressing car-wise. Oh, let's not forget the street bike for canyon-carving.

Anyway, as I learn more about the SLK, I've been scouring your archives for tips and instructions on various topics, from changing bulbs, choosing tires, suggested mods, and getting ideas from other owners.

I'm glad I found this site.

Welcome from Santee. I just sent you a private message about the BBQ this upcoming weekend up in the LA area if you're interested.

I'd love to meet a few more San Diego area SLK folks!
