Just wanted to say hello. Collected my first MB yesterday after chopping in my 56 plate WRX STI Spec-D that I had owned for 8 years and 1 day !!


So far its a nice place to be in the SLK (despite it doing nothing but raining in the UK where I am), and obviously its a massive departure from the STI. But I look forward to spannering bits of it in the near futhre and doing all (or as much) of my own maintenance as I can.


Rob.

Welcome from Gloucester uk
I too came from an Impreza only mine was a 2007 WRX Hawkeye ( mapped to 300bhp )
I went from the Impreza to an R171 350 which I found to be a much better and bizzarly more powerful than the Impreza
Now I have 2012 R172 55 and can say it’s worlds apart from the Impreza and so much better.
Enjoy your SLK.
