Hi all

all being well we'll be collecting our new (to us) SLK on saturday. We were initially looking for a 4 series (or as an outside choice an A5 coupe) but after a chance test-drive decided a couple of weeks ago that the SLK made more sense financially (was just sooo much cheaper). Cue loads of searching for the 'right' spec.... initially Mrs Waylander wanted white with a red leather interior and I wanted specific toys too so the 'hunt' was on.

I must admit that I didn't realise quite how few cars would be available with what we/I wanted though :surprise: That being said we have finally plumped for this spec...

250 cdi AMG
irridium
red nappa
heated seats
air-scarf (one of my "must haves")
memory pack
heated windscreen washers
satnav
memory seats
magic-sky roof

to be fair there are a few other bits 'n' bobs but I can't recall them all - just yet :wink:

other than that it's a 2012 with just under 19,000 miles.

This will be our 1st Merc - though not our first 'SLK' as I've owned 2 Crossfires in the past (am I allowed to say that? >:D)

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
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.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.
