Have about 350 miles on my retirement dream car. Picked up a 2012 SLK 350 in Black with Ash interior. Traded in an '07 Z4 3.0si. No more cloth tops for me. :) This is, without a doubt, the nicest car I have ever owned. I retired from Lockheed Martin about 6 months ago and do a little consulting to stay busy. I believe I'll be showing up at the retiree lunches in style!

Welcome from NE England - congratulations on your new car and retirement - just watch out for that 'little consulting to stay busy' - it has a nasty habit of taking over :)

Thanks for the welcomes, I usually run 20k per year. I'm in Fort Worth, have kids and grand kids in Sacramento, and try to do a trip to northern WV at least once a year. That seems to rack up miles. Looking forward to driving this in the WV hills. :)

:tu:Congratulations and welcome from Virginia. Retired and a new car, what a deal. I'm glad to see a serious accumulation of R172s here at SLKWorld. Enjoy the good life.

Welcome and congratulations on your new car. In case you are interested, there are two SLK clubs in the extended Bay Area that arrange drives about once a month. Something to keep in mind when you visit Sacramento.
