Just joined-live in Colorado Springs, CO. Bought a used 2012 MB SLK 350 about 3 years ago. Loved the car-was well equipped-in great shape, but I kept feeling that I wanted a little more zip, so I started looking at used SLK55 AMG's on Autotrader, and last August I found just what I wanted in Kansas City, KS, a red 2013 SLK55 AMG, with a designo red and black interior, P30 handling package, Magic Sky, carbon fiber trim, bi-xenon adaptive headlights, premium sound pkg, etc. Had 4200 miles from new, so I called on it, but they told me it had just been sold. I was bummed, but kept watching Autotrader for something comparable, when lo and behold, the same vehicle shows up at the same dealer with 4500 miles about 5 weeks later! I called immediately, and the dealer said that the guy who originally bought it in August, had bought it on impulse, and later decided he wanted a new SL, so he traded the SLK back-guess he does a lot of business with them. Anyway, I called, put together a deal, and then drove my 350 to KC, and traded it for the SLK55. I can't really express how much fun I have with it! Glad to join a bunch of like-minded enthusiasts.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
