Hello, I'm Craig and I'm a SLK-A-Holic
I'm Craig, it's been 2 years since my last confession and I haven't driven my SLK in 4 hours (I guess this means I have to give up my chip now).
I have a lot of cars in my posse, the SLK is my fun car. She's a 2007 SLK280 with only 32,000 miles on her, total garage queen and covered in the winter and she's a delicate special flower that doesn't go out when the weather is not sunny and dry.
I've kept my SLK pretty stock up until now - with the exception of buying the bluetooth module for my iPhone that replaced the CD changer - but the tide is turning and I'm ready to start doing stuff to the car since I just did my first Crankshaft Position Sensor change on it and that signified my leap into "no, the dealer doesn't need to do stuff on my 8 year old car anymore".
This is one of those case I doubt I'll part with easily - if ever. I went to the dealer to get an E series and, despite it being the winter, I saw this beauty on the showroom floor and said "change of plans, warm THAT one up for me" and it's been love ever since. I love the lines of the SLK.
I'm distracted by shiny objects....oh wait, what was that.....
