Hello
After doing a great amount of research on this forum about these cars i finally pulled the trigger and bought a 2008 SLK 55 over the weekend :smile:
My wife said that I could drive it home since it would be the only time that i would get to drive it:crying:
Thanks for all the great info that i found on the site

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.

Welcome from Portland/Clackamas, Oregon. Check out the SLK NW Group under the clubs section of the forum. Or depending on your location check out some of the social groups that may also be in your area by going to tools on the main tool bar, then quick links and finally social groups.

Welcome from Hillsboro, Oregon! Like Dave said, check out the Seattle club and the Beaver State SLKs social group here. And come down for the car corral at the Portland Vintage Festival at PIR July 11-12. A weekend filled with voluptuous sheetmetal, partially burned hydrocarbons, and noise!
