Hello, new member here.

Bought my first SLK a 2008 280 two and half years ago, thought it was excellent and great fun.

Whilst waiting for the garage to finish its first service I noticed they had a 2008 55 AMG in the showroom, love at first sight, couldn't believe how different it was to my 280 and sounds just amazing, radio never on and always roof down or window open so I can hear that exhaust... Year and half later and still smiling every time I get in and drive it.

Welcome Aspeed33!

Fellow new user / new owner here in sunny England :p

It was the sound that hooked me too.

I remember my first test drive, I'd come from a Z3 3.0 and was pretty much prepared to get a Z4m. Seeing the SLK55 was a formality I put myself through to make sure I had something to compare against. Then I turned the key and heard the V8 roar for a moment before burbling gently in idle.

That was 6 months ago and I've been an owner for 3 weeks. I think I made the right choice.

Love at first sound? :grin:
