i traded in my slk today

ive been thinking about changing my car since last year, but i never pulled the trigger because i love my slk55

anyway, i got a deal on the car i've always wanted, so i had no other choice but to traded in my slk :(

im really going to miss my slk, my new car isnt a convertible, so i will definitely miss that. im gonna miss the clunky 7g gearbox too. im gonna miss all the good times i had it in my slk.

i would still like to join the drive meets with my socal buddies if you guys let me. im still gonna visit slkworld frequently, i met so many great people here and i would still like to continue the friendship.

good bye slk :crying:

Sorry to see you go.
You are more than welcome to stay and visit with us.
On the SLK meets, I think you might need to ride shotgun though :D :D

Hey John. That's unexpected! What did you end up getting as a replacement?

Oh and of course you can come do runs with us. For our group it starts with the car but the friendships are most important! :tu:

thanks guys,

when i am looking for another convertible in the future, it will definitely be another slk (or slc rather)

i ended up getting a ferrari. i figured i should drive it before i have any family to support.

so far, i dont know if this was the right decision :/ it feels like car owns me rather than i own the car. i cant even freely park anywhere

and all the attention im getting, i thought i would enjoy it, but im geting more paranoid.

John, congratulations on the new car! What year, model, etc?


Durk, perhaps we should have a gathering of former SLKers with their new rides... Ferrari, Aston, Nissan GTR, Corvette.
And this is just for SoCal.

Sweet Ride !

Stop back by any time. Maybe you can reminisce about how cheap it used to be to get your Mercedes fixed. :)

Best Wishes

Looks like you found a great car though, but yeah you might miss that top down (more affordable) driving experience. Either way I can't blame you for trading it for a Ferrari, always wanted one myself, but then I fell in love with the SLK when they first rolled out. Good thing is you can always trade back down to a SLC anytime in the future, so enjoy the prancing pony while you have it :)

Would be fun to see different car makes on our meet-and-drive. I may get to sit inside an Aston Marton, Ferrari, etc. :grin:

I got F430, i guess the banks do not care how much i make, or my income/debt ratio are, 27 yo single man buying a ferrari without any co-signer = downpay 40% or more

o yea, my insurance went up by $2500 too :(

i couldn't take many pictures yet cuz i was too busy, but here is what i have.

yea, i will probably get another slc in the future, i just love the hardtop convertible.

I can't believe anyone would trade in an SLK for a Ferrari.................an Aston Vanquish maybe
i cant afford aston vanquish :(
