Hi all have just joined tonight and want to give you a brief of myself. I have been in the merc's for 3 years now. Started with a slk 200 and made a mistake by calling to our main dealer for touch up paint for the car and a slk 55 AMG was sitting there calling for me. Well what else could I do but at least go and look at it (what harm could could it do). Sales man must have been (on point duty) came running over with the key. What harm would it do to at least start it up, so I turned the key and that was it SOLD now I then said how much do you want for it. So that was my start to the AMG world. Just bought the 172 on the first of Jan 16 (now 300 miles on it). Before the Merc world I have had TVR's and the last one was a Chimera 500 but let it go as the wife wanted a more refined ride. (the SLK 200 was never going to do a V8 nut). I have now retired from the real world being a civil servant for 35 years. Ps cant seem to get a pic of the car on my threads but will keep trying.

Hi Ray, and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)
Thanks guys for the welcome, am busy looking throu different threads. Reading the one about the 171 v,s the 172. I had the same thoughts as I had the 171 but when I heard that there would be no more V8,s I knew I had to buy one of the last 172,s and I am loving it except the running in bit.
