Hi everyone!

I wanted to let you all know that I was lucky enough to find an SLK today!

It's a Silver 2005 SLK 55 that was modified by Brabus (B55). The car only had 52,000 miles on it and runs like a dream! :rb

I found some pictures of the very same car from 6 years ago when it was featured on a dealer website. I will post those and, eventually, I will take some pictures of the car in it's present form (it really hasn't changed at all).

I cannot wait to get it out on the road for a road trip!

Congrats! I've been eyeing that car on Autotrader for a while now!
I saw where he had it listed for $32,900 back in June. He dropped the price to $28,900 so I had to have a look. The paint was in fine shape but it does need a good detailing inside and out. The rims are pretty shabby so I will have to figure out what to do with those. It has a pretty intense sound system but it is very confusing to figure out how it all works! I think the company that installed it is still around so hopefully they can tell me how they all play together.

I drove home from Desert Hot Springs... 24 MPG! Not too bad (ok..I kind of babied it)!

I went to play some golf and took the SLK out since it was a 50 mile jaunt... For fun, I drove 65 - 70 MPH on the way home.... and got 28.1 MPG! Not bad I think!!!
