Hi all. I just bought my first Mercedes and it's a nifty 2006 SLK280: Artic white with red seats/doors. It's actually for my wife. My toy is a 2008 Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe. But, I really enjoy driving the SLK. I have never felt anything like it. Back in the 70's and 80's I've had a Datsun (Nissan) 280Z and a Mazda RX7 but don't remember having the solid feel and elegance of this baby. The hard-top convertible is what sold me. Cruzin the beaches of Fort Lauderdale with the top down is a blast.
