..from the (not so) sunny Isle of Wight. Which is a shame, because it's a holiday today.

2006 SLK280 auto, bought on Friday. Blue outside, light grey inside. Only done about 150 miles so far - all going well.

Welcome from NE England. I used to race an OOD4 out of Lymington, and most of our races started from the RYS at Cowes, IOW. Longish drive every Friday afternoon.

Hi from London, welcome aboard!

Car sounds great, any chance of a pic?
Here's a pic. Note mudflaps!



Mostly the spec I wanted, because the wheels aren't too big. Roads around here are quite poor and I want to keep all my teeth. No COMAND, which is a shame, but the standard radio is very impressive. Airscarf, heated seats, wind deflector should keep it useable top-down all year.
