Newbie from New Zealand on the verge of becoming a fully fledged SLKworld member. Pre-purchase inspection undertaken two days ago of a 2007 SLK 55 AMG [silver] - duly smitten ever since with the 'Sportlich, Leicht & Kurz' not forgetting the white noise :laugh: . Currently undertaking due diligence via the SLKworld forum and other knowledge sources seeking to arrive at an informed decision [bit of a no brainer really] . Other contenders have come and gone ; LOTUS Exige , BMW Z4 [in various guises] , Honda S2000, members of the Porsche family and the Jaguar XKR. Present ride & French heart throb = Renaultsport Megane R26 Team F1 [former FWD record lap hot hatch of the Green Hell Nurburgring fame] which, all going well will soon have a new stable mate [with AMG pedigree] .

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.

Black arm band kind of day

Quick update , I regret to advise that the sale and purchase of the aforementioned SLK55 AMG went to another party :crying:

My quest continues , in the interim I am digesting and savouring the resources of the remarkable SLKWORLD ......and when i behave i am allowed to take my good wife's Z3 [The little red rooster] for a spin .....this being afterall the source of my 'conversion to convertibles'

Go well

Too bad

Hi Tacmot,
Commiserations on the loss of your well researched new "baby" I hope that you have the bug enough to find another suitable 55, although with your other toys it looks like you've plenty of other distractions.

Happy hunting

As stated, a no brainer. Put your brain in an SLK cage and don't look back (you won't because it's physically impossible lol).
