Hi Folks;

New member here that is currently looking to purchase an SLK. This has been a great place to get informed and I have already meet some incredibly helpful and nice people... and even right in my backyard (Der Flieger). I suspect friendships are forming that will last a life time... and isn't that what being a car enthusiast is really all about?

I am a bit of a self professed car nut and I look forward to learning about and owning an SLK. Frankly never thought I would own a Mercedes Benz, but I must admit MB has been doing a great job in the last 10 years getting their cars to appeal to my more "sporty" side. The SLK, SL, the C class, the SLS have all become cars that I now notice.

As a hobby, I teach high performance driving at the track, and while the SLK will definitely not be a track toy (its more for my wife and I to experience open air motoring and enjoy outings with new friends), I do look forward to a few sessions seeing what she can do at Calabogie Motorsports Park or Le Circuit Mt. Tremblant (once I find a suitable car that is!)


That's it for now, best Regards from Ottawa Canada;
Eric

Welcome from Orlando! If you have the budget, go for an SLK55!! I've driven (and raced) many cars, and it is the most enjoyable little beast I've ever driven (apologies to my WRX)... It has all the things one might like about a Benz: elegance, beauty, style, comfort & panache, as well as all those things one might like about a driver's car: (brutal) acceleration, high handling limits & ride (just make sure you put some Michelin Super Sports on it!)... Go ahead, you'll thank me later...
