Newbie Introduction

Hi,

I am retired Air Force Officer.
I have a 2012 Mercedes SLK350 that I bought 6 years ago.
It looks great and I really like it...
Still learning how to use this...

tip 4 u

Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment or use the 'quote' button so we know who you are asking or replying to or referencing.
