Bought a Mercedes Benz for my wife for Christmas

Found a low mileage 1999 SLK for an excellent price. Bought it for my wife Hanne for Christmas. She won't drive my BMW Z3 because it's R/H drive.

The SLK was more expensive than the BMW, and it's easy to see why; Everything in the cockpit is classier, better quality.

Of course, I will be able to drive it whenever I want. :)

Welcome from central Florida. Great job with the gift. Although we have a silver 1999 SLK 230, the wife will find a red 2001 SLK 320 in the drive tomorrow. She loves red cars.

What a great Christmas present. I have the same car same year with AMG styling.
