Well, it looks great on that vid.

I'm not sure what it's called, I think it's called side clearance?
Well, we don't have that side clearance. So only the bottom LED lights.

Saturday, my wife and I were out for a top down drive. We went out to the lake, which is virtually abandoned this time of year, but is a scenic drive none the less. We pulled in to the boat ramp, where there was a huge paved parking lot, restrooms, and no one else around. She asked me to stop by the rest rooms, and while I was waiting I kept looking at that big unused piece of blacktop.

Suddenly my little SLK jumped forward, shutting the passenger door, and did a loud, sharp, smoky U-turn, and parked right back where it started! (much to my amazement) I blame this video and my wifes tiny bladder, for the inspiration to pull such a shenanigan.

When she returned, she said, "What was that squealing noise?"

"I didn't hear any noise" I replied.

We drove off quietly enjoying the view, and we were both smiling.

I don't see the sense in spinning around in a parking lot and driving senselessly in such a nice car. I can think of better ways to have fun!

I know you are right Lew, and I did feel a little guilty after I spun it around.

On the other hand, there was no one there but me, and I was curious how the traction control would work. It is a little different when it comes on, and I may have learned something about the handling I wasn't aware of.

It reminds me of the cartoon where the guy has a little angel on one shoulder, and a little devil on the other arguing over what to do.

I've done it on snow, and on wet pavement but never on dry - I treasure my low mileage tires too much - Looks like I will end up getting a new set every year

Now that's funny. I had another SLK get totaled by another driver last year, so seeing stunts still makes me very nervous. I know, I know. I should get over it with a little medication coupled with CBT. JK

Thanks for the vid & glad you missed the post/hydrant!

Been there, done that, mistakes were made, totaled my first SLK.

Nowadays my nerves find it more enjoyable to watch others perform typical adolescent car maneuvers. Its like the entertainment value in watching others get drunk, as opposed to waking up in the morning and either looking at the car one last time before it goes off for repair/salvage or asking others to tell you what all went on the night before.

I do believe them both to be some of life's little rights of passage though so
