Here's my entry - nicknamed 'sleeky 2' (it's the 2nd SLK 55 AMG I've owned).

List of mods - Kleemann headers, full s/s exhaust with X-pipe & de-cat, NeedsWings induction kit, custom remapping, Sprint Booster, Wavetrac LSD, YSR Coilovers, 10mm spacers, strut brace, A-mode enabled, Apple CarPlay, steering wheel re-trim, Smart Top, 2-stage paint correction with ceramic coating.

With 420bhp on tap, she NEVER fails to put a huge smile on my face 😁

Thought I would enter one that started it all. R170 - SLK 32. 2004, one of 312 made. It is amber red (not to be confused with Firemist Metalic. 1 of 2 amber red that I have seen. The other is also an ‘04 in California. 32’s are turbo charged. Mine on the dyno was 340 lbs. Torque and 311 whp. Hence the name Toy

As my husband (Mugs) spent his holiday sorting out my car and not his own (which he had originally planned to do) I thought I would show off ‘Raven’s’ new look.
Lowered, wheels painted black with silver lips, chrome bonnet fins and grill fins.
I think my favourite thing is still the amount of people that stop to admire her in car parks and all the lovely comments from total strangers.

Errrrrr, some beauties here.....

My wee beastie...it’s a real keeper, sweet as a nut! 😘👍👍👍

EDIT: My most memorable moment was driving my car home after buying it. It was a sunny day and the drive home took me over The Pennines from Manchester to Sheffield. Driving over the Snake Pass, past Labybower and Derwent Water (where the bouncing bomb was tested in WWII). For those that have never done this, it’s amongst the most beautiful drives you can do. With the top down, I quickly discovered just how quick my ‘new to me’ car was. The sound of the screaming V6, the warm sun and blue skies, the smell of the Pines and the empty, twisting road this first time is something I’ll never forget. There have been many other memories but this one ranks as the best.

Hey, thanks for reading the edit. 👍👍👍

I have added Smart Top, Flappy Paddles and the wonderful A Mode to the transmission (thanks to @mike350 and @i860 for their generous help). I've also jury rigged a lead that snakes in through a window so that I can keep the battery trickle charged from the sun's rays.

I think what I like best about the Little Growler is that even though it's quite expensive to run, the SPG (smiles per gallon) is very high. My favourite journey, so far, has been zipping around on the long and sinuous, empty D roads in rural France.
