Hey everyone! I'v only recently discovered the world of slk's (pun intended?) I'm under the legal drinking age but that doesn't change the fact i want to own a slk.
My older brother whom i see as a mentor of sorts own's a '05 slk 55 AMG. He's revealed the beauty of these gem's and i began to become entranced by them.
So i decided to purchase my first '06 Slk 55 AMG. I'm loving the car more and more everyday! Unfortunately for my the only downside of this car is just a plain old audio 20 system.
However i soon hope to change that forever. In the process of a massive DIY project! Very exited to be here and learn and grow in the world of slks!!

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!
Since you live in Sacramento you might as well join us for a SLK drive. We have an email list to notify SLK members of our drives/meets/lunches. Due to the corona virus we are sheltering in place, once the virus is gone we’ll be back to doing drives again. Be sure to check out the California section here on SLKWORLD all of our past & future drives are listed there. We have over 70+ SLK members & we are also on Facebook. Please send me your email so I can you to the list as well as a friend request on Facebook. Thank you
