Hello to SLKWorld,

My name is Harry, and I am in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I finally ended up in an 06 SLK55 with 30k miles. It sounds and drives amazing.
I came over from the CLK550 with 19k miles(it unfortunately got totaled - built like a tank as I walked out without a scratch).
My overall impression in the first week of ownership is that they are two completely different cars - one more comfortable more luxurious (wood, softer seats, etc) but the SLK is a rocket!
I look ahead to doing many happy miles in it! I now have a permanent smirk on my face while driving!

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.
