Hello to all. I am a new member. I live in Bartlesville Oklahoma and work in Tulsa. I bought a 1980 450 SL in 2006 in Miami, Florida and have been driving it for years. Last year I bought a Certified Pre-Owned 2014 SLK 55 AMG with 4k miles on it. It is Black on Black. I love it. I am learning what the real story is behind owning a performance car. Tire/wheel misery, Insurance, careless people in parking lots, and everybody wants to race you.
I recently completed a PADA certified Auto Detailing Certification class at my local technical college, which opened my eyes to why a detail costs so much. But, now I feel like I can fix about anything with respect to paint or body damage. That has been my biggest worry, chips and scratches. I still have a warranty for 2 more years.
Looking forward to learning from those who already know.
Cheers,
Paul G.

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.
