You were very lucky - one of our members hit a similar puddle a couple of years ago, hydrauliced his engine, threw a con rod and had to have the engine replaced - the joys of having the standard 'cold air inlet' induction system - low down at the front of the car.

I thought it captured the deep, rich sound of the exhaust! I had to replay it for my son twice!

Holy Festive Sh*t! Thats horrible!! I thought that I might have damaged something? but she kept on going
I was not expecting a puddle like that on a road I know so well.
The wrong bit was flooded??? I was relieved that I got away with it.
The cabin as you can hear was a totally 'Shriek free' zone during that moment

If you'd watched closely, you would have seen it was on a dual carriageway.

That's not to say that anyone who takes their SLK swimming on Christmas Eve isn't a little bit crazy!!

Extremely crazy would have been with the top down as well!!

I fell for that last time - this time I twigged pretty quickly.

Car sounds great - lucky that the water didn't cause any grief.

Please accept my sincerest apologies. (But right enough what you say, a bit crazy.)
