Hello!

A quick post to say hello and introduce myself. I am the new proud owner of an immaculate 55 AMG in iridium silver, collect it a week on Saturday from John Holland in Sheffield. It's a one owner car from new, local lass from Sheffield who traded it in for a Porsche 911. The car has every optional extra and the garage tell me it's immaculate.

However, the car has done 70K miles, took a bit of a gamble on it based on the condition and ownership. Having owned a BMW Z3M Coupe in the past with 80K miles on it and havin x2 years of excellent/reliable ownership, I am not put off by high mileage cars but would appreciate your opinion based on the 55 AMG?

My previous cars:- Lotus Esprit V8 Twin Turbo, TVR T350C, Porsche911 CarreraS 993, BMW Z3M coupe and (going way back) a Evo7 FQ300. (few pics attached)

I like the unusual cars and can't wait to drive (and hear) the 55 AMG, already purchased the Supersprint x-pipe this morning R)

Hope to see some of you soon.

Welcome from London, and nice list of toys there! Drive the '55 for a bit before changing the exhaust - I *love* the way mine sounds "out of the box".

Welcome from California. Does it have a complete MB service history documented for review?

Seeing your previous cars, I am not sure you will be prepared for the SLK55 BEFORE you put the X Pipe on it! However, you sure will like it both ways!

Welcome aboard.

Looks like you've got a love for cars. I don't think you'll be disappointed with the 55.... and if you are I'm sure there's lots of people here that would love to take it off your hands :)
