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.

I can imagine driving a 3 cylinder Diatsu...bc I did. Ever done that? Yea, we are talking boredom factor 5. It's like driving a can opener, but not nearly as exciting.

Anywho welcome bwa-ha-ha-haaaaaa

Good Lord, you folks are a friendly bunch. That's the most welcomes on a new forum I've ever received.

So first of all let me say thank you very much for the kind welcomes. I bought my SLK in Atlanta and drove it back to St. Lou, so Avel Du, I know exactly what you meant when you wrote: 'I have an SLK and it is ...... Minutes since I last drove it'

I'm loving this forum so far; it's answered a ton of my questions, and raised a lot more, but that's a good thing.

Anyway, thanks again for all the welcomes, they're much appreciated. I'm already thoroughly enjoying my SLK 350 purchase, and am delighted to join the party.

Is your car red? A dealer in Atlanya told me I could fly down, drive their car, they would pay for the hotel, and then I could enjoy a night on the town. I said well I might enjoy the car but I certainly wouldn't enjoy a night in Atlanta.

Hi Roxanne7169. Its Storm Red Metallic, which really looks more like a burgundy, but in any case I bought it from a friend who lives in a nearby suburb, not a dealer.

And dang, he didn't offer any hotel or night on the town experience. All I got was a good home cooked meal, though it was some killer BBQed Rib Eyes, so I can't complain.

Gee, I thought all of the other people I met down in Atlanta were very nice, but then again I drove by them all so fast, who really knows?

Thanks for the welcome, @Terminal. I've been to London, and enjoyed many good nights out there.

I'll have to check out those spots you linked the next time I'm down in Atlanta.
