Just bought a beautiful 2006 SLK 280 in mint condition from a guy in Houston. I have been following this forum for several months, and finally found a SLK that was pristine. I have always owned domestic cars and trucks, although I just purchased a new Acura MDX for the wife.

I am enjoying the SLK 280 more than I thought I would. I actually tried to by a Porsche Boxster for the past year with no luck. I think the SLK is a much more luxury car than the Boxster.

Looking forward to meeting lots of SLK owners. I have the only SLK in this area!

Very nice. Welcome to the forum from San Diego, CA. I enjoyed your fine city a few years ago although I avoided driving during daylight :) You have some bad, bad traffic!

Greetings from Tennessee !

I feel the same way - found a beautiful '06 SLK 280 and it was my first M-B as well. Absolutely love driving it !

Your challenge my friend, will be to find curvy roads and mountains which make it even more fun to drive ! Sounds like a Road Trip is in order !

Welcome from Maryland! I would agree with you on the more luxurious part, my boss has a Boxster and he complains about the stiff suspension.

Thanks for the welcome

Thanks to all for the welcome! I don't have too many winding roads in Kansas, as the Interstate system is one big straight 4 lane. We do have a 75 mph speed limit, so I can open up the SLK somewhat. The previous owner said he took it to 130 thru Oklahoma!

I agree that we have some of the worse drivers in the country here in Kansas. I am a electric utility manager and drive 25-30K miles per year, so I get to experience those bad drivers daily. Keeps you on your toes!

You're going to love the SLK - a superior car in every respect I think. And you're going to love the hardtop. Do you have airscarf? It will add to your "season". You may want to upgrade the wheels and tires to 350 standard.
