Hello forum friends. I'm excited to own my first MB and be part of your cool club. I'm a car crazy guy who suffers from being financially responsible. Read into that, no Ferrari, Lambo or Kia! :) I was in the market for a drop top to add to my personal stable and the wife gave me the green light that would put me in a used car with class. I drove almost all of the players (911, Boxster, S2000, Miata RF, etc.) and enjoyed them all to one degree or another. My neighbor has been selling at the local MB dealer for over 10 years and suggested that I try out the SLK. Although not wise, he had me drive the new SLC AMG43. Yes, I was sold. No, not in my budget. I ended up finding a 2014 SLK250 Carbon Edition that has just enough cool for me. 21k miles and in near perfect condition. I'll keep you updated with photos when ready. This will garage next to my Panamera GTS and Lexus LX570. (Now you understand the wife's budget. Who needs all of these cars?)

I'm looking forward to the experience!
