Cool Hello from Germany

Hi all,

On July first I bought a Mercedes-Benz SLK 230 Kompressor from 1999. This weekend my Baumert remote will arrive and I'll start with restoring the interior. Besides a thorough cleaning (cigarette smoke) I need to remove scratches and wear and tear.

I startet cabrio-life with an MGB Limited Edition from 1979, which was a super car, but it broke down every other week. Then I got a (lease) Renault Megane Cabrio with soft-top, which was a nice car, nothing special. After that one I tried a Peugeot 207cc and now finally a Mercedes.

Trying it on the German Autobahn is super! It's really fun driving 180 (kmh) and still being able to accelerate to 230 in a few secs. The faces on the BMW and Audi-drivers was priceless, them not being used to getting passed by other cars!

I'm looking forward to driving it on a daily basis.

-Hans
