Hi all
I have just traded my 2004 SL-500 for a 2012 SLK-350. Why? Cos I missed playing MP3s!
I am beyond mid-life crisis. I enjoy the sporty feel of the -350. Reminds me of the old sportsters from the 70s.

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.

DCL, I am in Waldorf. What part of DC? Who does your service?
I'm one block north of Dupont Circle.

I purchased my SLK from Mercedes of Fredericksburg (long story) but have recently been to Mercedes of Silver Spring. I haven't had any real service done yet other than the application of Glass Coat by Fredericksburg. Overall, Fredericksburg really rolled out the red carpet. The only thing that gives me pause it the distance as it is quite a hike from DC.

Silver Spring did my dash clock retrofit and they were fine after a slightly rough start. I'll probably return to Silver Spring just because it is so much closer unless they give me reason to go elsewhere.

You are lucky. Down hyar all I have are shops that take care of Harleys and 68 Camaros! My shop is close to MB/Alex but is about 33% cheaper. The only thing is the drive across the Wilson Bridge for Drop off/PU but I seriously dont have a choice. They babysat my 2004 SL-class for 2+ years and now tend to my wifes 2012 ML-class. I cant complain. They have been good to me.

Thank you all for the courteous welcome! My SLK was picked up today and after a 1-hour drive I am completely impressed!
