2013 SLK200
1 Posts
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
Hi all,
I've just purchased a 2013 SLK200 with fairly low mileage for the year (52k). I'm really happy with it so far and have done about 300 miles in the week since I collected it, mostly with the roof down. It's amazingly cosy even in the chill temperatures we've had in the UK in the last week, I just love the airscarf and heated seats. It's very much a non-essential "boy's toy" but I intend to give it plenty of use and have insured it for 9000 miles per year to ensure I can use it whenever I want to.
I've had several convertibles before, i.e. Spitfire (40 years ago), TR7 (briefly), TR6 (20 years ago), MX5, Saab 9-3 & VW Eos; after lots of VWs & BMWs as my everyday cars, this is my first ever Mercedes, so I'm very much looking forward to seeing what M-B ownership brings.
I'm also looking forward to being involved in the forum, what I've seen so far looks extremely useful.
See you soon!
