My name is Aaron, and I'm a brand new member here. So I wanted to introduce myself and tell you a bit about me and my interest in the beautiful and alluring SLK. :)

I'm 22 years old, and I live in Louisiana where I was born and raised. I'm a software developer (or "computer programmer" in laymen terms), and I am relentlessly working on bringing my small business up in the corporate food chain. I also just started work/training at another company (part-time) that is developing a 3D game/simulation engine.


I've been the proud owner of a Mercedes-Benz SLK 280 for two years now. It's one thing I've never regretted buying for one second! They are absolutely amazing cars and drive like a dream. This is my first Mercedes-Benz (or high-end car period) that I've ever owned or driven. I was initially planning to buy a BMW Z-Series, but seeing the shiny, silver 2006 SLK in near mint condition at an excellent price peaked my interest. I gave both cars a test drive, and found myself instantly in love with the SLK. The hard top, as opposed to the Z's soft top, also played a major factor in my decision. Not only do I like the looks of a hard top convertible more, but it's generally more secure (both against damage and theft). So I chose the SLK without a second thought! This took me straight from an old F-150 pickup (originally the cheapest single-cab XL which I did my best to fix up as a teen) to a Mercedes-Benz. Needless to say, this was a change that felt absolutely wonderful! :)

It's a pleasure to meet you all for the first time, and this looks like a very nice community. I frequent the Baton Rouge and Denham Springs area of Louisiana, and can often be seen tearing down the back roads northeast of the city (near Watson and sometimes Walker). :)

I could only find one picture of my true love on my PC, of the interior. I'll post a proper picture of it some time, but until then:



She's still in excellent condition, even after having her two years. However, just the other day, I somehow got a little crack in my front bumper. :confused: It has about 25K miles on it.

Nice to meet you all, again!

Regards,

Thank you all for the warm and friendly reception! :)

I just did as suggested by jbanks15: updated my details and added my vehicle. I don't have any other pictures yet, but I will fix it up nicely when I find where I stored all of my many photos (I think on a USB flash-drive somewhere around here).

It's a pleasure to be here, and I'm impressed with how both friendly and active this place is. Also, all of you have great taste in cars! :D
