Okay, so I'm a long time McLaren/Mercedes fan and think it's finally time for me to reach deeper into my wallet to purchase one of these fine vehicles. I'll start my search around December and hope to have an SLK55 AMG around spring time.

My previous cars have been a 05 limited Crossfire, 05 SRT6 Crossfire, 99 Firebird Convertable (I still own), and 98 Dodge Neon (First car). I just turned 25 and am an IT professional for a large practice here in Nashville, TN.

I found this site @ MBWorld.org and am glad I did, their SLK forum has started to run dry.

They were awesome cars and a lot of fun, to bad the dealers in my area sucked.
Hopefully, those "were" the dealerships that did not continue with the NEWCO - Chrysler.... Usually, only a few techs understood the Crossfire at Chrysler dealerships and may explain why they "sucked". My Chrysler build vehicles consistently had better service experiences at Chrysler dealerships than when they serviced a Crossfire..... I always had to show the dealer service representatives how to reset the DSS for the next service mileage indicator. Not the way to satisfy the customer regardless who built the vehicle. Again, Welcome to this forum - I have learned a lot from the resources that contribute to the forum and I am sure you will as well.

Sadly when I had problems with the car I had to find out what the answer was from crossfireforum.org. Afterwards I would show the service advisor what needed to be fixed and then he'd ignore me and replace another part only to come back later and do exactly what I would tell him to do in the first place. Some of that could be because I was 21, but those were the worst experiences I've ever had with a dealer. Sadly though, they made it through the Chrysler closings... Lost their GM/Pontiac side though :D

Personally I'll look around for a few months before I start to ask questions or make many comments... unless it's a conversation about F1 ;)
