As you can see from my join date, I have been a member of this forum for a while now but have never posted. I am a car fanatic and have owned many, many brands of vehicles through the years and always seem to keep coming back to Mercedes. I recently purchased a 2015 Mars Red SLK250 which is my fourth SLK, my twenty-third Mercedes. My most recent vehicle before this latest SLK was the new BMW i3 electric car. It was a fantastic vehicle but there were too many little software issues which needed to be worked out. Earlier in the year I had had a 2014 Mercedes E350 coupe which I had liked very much so I decided to return to the brand. Having owned so many different kinds of cars, I have been a member of many different forums, and I have been very impressed whenever I have followed this forum in the past by the politeness and friendliness of the members. You are to be congratulated, and I look forward to following it once again and learning more about these great automobiles!
