Cool Thank You

What a fabulous way to kick off a new year! Thanks to everyone who took the time and voted for the ROTY and to those who consistently vote for the ROTM throughout the year.

I am honored to be in such good company with all the 2018 ROTM winners! Actually, all of us are true winners just because we drive a SLK!

Thank you all very much and don't forget to ENTER and VOTE for the ROTM every month, it's fun to enter and more fun to win!

Have a happy, safe and topless New Year!

Congratulations to you, MK.

And I can vouch that the car looks even more spectacular in the flesh, so to speak. Particularly alongside a Mustang.
