Greetings from sunny South Africa - home of the lion & elephant!

Recently acquired my first Mercedes -and a SLK no less!

I have always been a BMW driver and the first thing i noticed was the difference in quality - the Merc wins hands down in terms of fit & finish!

I also transitioned from a large SUV (BMW X5) to a small roadster (SLK) but after initial fears & misgivings I am utterly blown away by the sheer exhilaration & fun provided by the little guy - really enjoying it immensely especially with the top down on beautiful scenic drives so prevalent here in Cape town & surrounds.

Kind regards to all & sundry
