Hey all! Just found this community and I'm very happy to read and learn from you all!
Got my beautiful 2006 silver SLK55 last month and I must say, I am driving twice as much as I expected. I'm still at the phase of asking everyone if they want a ride :)
Waiting for my SmartTop and windshield to arrive this week. Also looking into possibly replacing the headunit I have. I got the Premium package so it looks like it's more complicated than it should be. Any tips will be great!
Cheers!
Ben

Thank you all for the warm welcome!
LIL DON, hope things are alright up there. I'm always looking for excuses to get out of the town, the farther the better

Welcome!

Welcome from Bellevue, WA (outside of Seattle)

I just got my 2006 SLK55 AMG two weeks ago but black! >:D

I too am driving wayyy more then I thought I would be but loving it. Took it to the Seahawks game Friday and going on road trip this Sunday. I took it to Leavenworth (another day trip) the Sunday before that.

Our cars are so much fun to drive!

I got the windscreen too and had a really nice custom one etched.

Have fun with your car!
