Hi All.
My name is Rob.
I live in North Wales UK, and have 10 days ago acquired my first Mercedes.
It is a 2005 silver SLK 350 with 57,000 miles. and I am still smiling when I drive it..I don't know if this feeling will ever wear off. I love it....I researched lots of cars before selecting the Merc, 3.2s boxters, xk8 xkr jags, bmw z3, audi tt, and it was forums like this and reviews that helped me so much...so here I am. looking forward to lots of reading and also getting my first post in as a newbie....

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

I've had mine for only a few weeks, so my smile still hurts, but I heard from longtime owners that your face will adapt and get stuck like that. Then it won't hurt anymore.

Just put a toothbrush in the glove compartiment, to get rid of the flies :).

Enjoy your ride!
