In the final stretch...

I've found a silver/red 06 350...
21k miles
auto
scarf
Command (sans Nav)
MB dealer says no major problems...
asked 26600
settled on 23000
Cdn dollar closed at 1.04 US

THE PLANETS HAVE ALIGNED?!

Routing..
CYOW-CYYZ-KIAH-KOKC (Ottawa Canada to Oklahoma City)

Everybody cross your fingers, here I go!! :biglaugh:

big thanks to all my SLK forum buds for their info, help and support!

Stay tuned to part II - the road trip home.

Sounds like a great deal, especially with the Canadian dollar being so strong, thats like an extra $1000 off the price :)

Hope it all works out and enjoy in good health!

Waytogo........... Don't forget to change the miles to kms when you cross the border.....I'd hate for you to lose your license (and car) on Day 1...:tu:

Flieger, you found the perfect car now buy it before the man in Black knocks on your door and you don,t have a chance to drive it. That would be a total waste. LOl. Now pls tell us did it take you that long too to find your perfect mate or did she just fall out of the sky into your Driveway?? I am so happy for you that you found the perfect Slk i wish you many happy smiles and miles of motoring in the new Baby. Cheers from Phoenix

:)One of two of my favorite color combinations. The SLK 350 is a solid choice. Good luck and happy motoring.

Done!! Very happy with the deal 23000US$ (at 1.0337 = 22250 beaver bucks)
Only surprise was a small (2x2") crack/tear under the lip of the front airdam (curb rash). Will now start planning the road trip home. Oklahoma City..Springfield...St Louis..Indy..maybe cross at Sarnia/Port Huron MI (family just north of there) then Guelph, Toronto, Kingston...and on into the driveway!
