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 bet you like it! :) Do you notice any difference from the SL to the SLK?
I'm actualy not quite sure why Mercede's makes the SL and SLK, why not make either/or. What are the differences?

I was going to go with Silver like my previous CLK430, knowing that Black was tough to keep clean, Red was to flashy, but the more I looked the more I said BLACK is sharp and need a color change! lol

My 2004 SL (65k):
Great touring car. Very comfortable ride in both E and S.
Turned lots of heads
6-CD changer only (and I love music)
Automobile started nickel/diming me with hydraulic repairs and intermittent issues
6-CD changer only

My 2012 SLK (36k):
Bumpier but more roadster feel on country roads. I feel one with the auto.
A few guys have noticed. No 18 yo ladies ....yet
USB port for MP3 stick
Still under 4 yr warranty
USB port for MP3 stick

Seriously I really missed my music blasting with the top down as I cruise the roads thru the swamps hyar in So MD. In the past 4 months owning it, this car is up there with my favorite cars owned.

Say hey to my relatives in Worcester!

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

I love music too. I just plug in my iPod and never have any commercials! Yippee!
