Hey SLK fans!!

My name is Voltaire and I just recently picked up a white SLK350 six speed manual with the AMG package.. I love it love it love it.

I join this forum late 2009 thinking that I would've gotten an SLK when I joined but something told me I wasn't quite ready for a two seater yet.. At the I had an A4 and w203 Mercedes..I loved both cars.. I got rid of them and picked me up an Infiniti G35.. But ever since then I still looked at the SLK and couldn't justify why I should get it.. But I always wanted me a convertible and had to be a manual.. In any case, I got rid of the G35 and went with a newer model A4 which again I loved but lacked the sports feel and power..of course like all my other cars I got tired of it so I went and did a other searches..

My plan was to keep my Audi and buy either an SLK or Z4 so that way if I need to go on long trips with people we can all fit in the Audi.. I actually love the Way the Z4 drove but I just couldn't get over the fact that it was a soft top..but I was at the dealership about to pick one up.. Figured if I wanted a hardtop I'd take my Audi.. Until after I was driving home from testing driving a Z4 my buddy was on autotrader and found a White 6 speed SLK350 with an AMG package and navigation.. It's pretty rare to find a car like this under $20K.. So that very same day me n my buddy drove 100 miles to check out the car... And that's when I fell In LOVE!!! It was love at first sight haha.. I came home posted my A4 on craigslist and that very same night some young marine picked up my Audi :( (I love my Audi very much) and the very next day I drove to pick up the SLK.. Whats even good about it was that it was more like a swap since I didn't really spend any money during the whole transaction of both cars.. Same year, same mileage but SLK was just better considering that it had more oomph under the hood, the handling, the six speed and of course the convertible which I love so much!! No regrets!!! Finally this is a car I see keeping!! :)

It's funny I drove it to work this week and everyone even my boss was admit me if I got a huge raise or something.. HahahA!! Anyways, I'm finally glad that I'm Actially posting here on SLK and actully having one to brag about!! Whoop whoop!!

Talk about getting raped.. Haha! The one thing I don't miss about mercedes..nonetheless, thank you all and can't wait to see y'all on the road :)
