I'm in Phoenix, AZ, US, found this site as I'm learning my new (to me) 2008 SLK55 AMG. Been without a convertible for a while and with a few spare bucks from selling a watch (my primary 'problem'). I decided it was time to fill the empty garage space. I drove an '05 SL but decided anything I buy needs to be quicker than my Volvo S90 T6, and that didn't qualify. Also spooked by the ABC suspension stories out there. Thought hard about a Porsche, one of few cars I haven't had, but for the price range (and my wife wanting an automatic) the options in decent shape were mostly pre-PDK autos, which failed the 'quicker than my Volvo' requirement. Then I found the AMG, which was owned by a single engineer who was obviously a bit manic about taking care of it, who just bought a newer Jag F-Type. The V8 sealed it for me, so now I'm learning the car, already checking the threads on tires, as it doesn't need anything but might want tires sometime next year. Looking forward to seeing what goes on here.
