Yippee I bought one !

Hi Everybody --

Thought I'd share my joy with you: today I bought a yellow 230K, from 2000, and having been driving up and down country roads all day. Then I drove slowly down Picadilly, Shaftesbury Avenue, and Charing Cross road smiling at passers by.

I don't need to tell you how much fun that is.

Jonathan.

Good on ya! I think yellow is a neat color. Glad you're happy, glad you got a chance to have fun with your new SLK. The chant is, "we want pictures, we want pictures..... We're happy, that you're happy. HAVE FUN!

Congrats and welcome. I also have a 2000 SLK230. They are great cars and a lot of fun. Finally the weather is nice enough here to ride around with the top down.

Do you live in London?

A yellow SLK in London would be great.

Glad you have joined us at SLKWorld. The people here are really nice.

Please post some pics of your car in London. It is one of my favorite cities.

How about a pix of your car in front of Fortnum and Masons....under the clock.

shameful thing cant be worse than a Blue Vectra () - which does serve a purpose - I've always loved good cars, the blue thing is not good, it is purely an adequate transport device, never gets any attention(from me, or anyone else ! ), just does what it says on the tin, and is driven in any road or weather condition. Not ashamed of it, but intrigued by your 'Shameful Thing' = what is it ???

Congrats :-)

I've only recently bought mine (done 800 miles so far) and it surprises me just how much attention it gets.
