Hello my name is Steve and I'm a new member. I've never owned a Mercedes before, but I just sold my 2016 Volkswagen Touareg and just purchased my dream car, a CPO 2014 SLK 250 in beautiful cardinal red with Sahara beige leather interior.
It also has the Premium One package along with Navigation, and a whole lot of other comfort and technological amenities.
I also own a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sahara and a 1957 Porsche 356 Speedster. I love to play guitar and enjoy boating. That's about it for me, so stop by and say hello sometime. Looking forward to learning and getting others advice about my SLK.

hello from Canada

Welcome to the site from Canada.
The 357 must be fun, I was going to buy a replica made by Intermeccanica in Vancouver a few years back but couldn't pull the trigger.
Im sure you will enjoy the Mercedes, nice looking car.
