Irish here. I am a new owner of the SLK55 AMG (red). This is my 3rd AMG in a row. C36 was first. The blown V6 C32 came next. Am getting to know the SLK with a week long leaf peaking tour in New England this coming week. Hopefully the weather will not be too bad. Stop by Kennebunkport and say "Oy Mate".

I loved both the C-klasses. C36 was an amazing handling, true drivers car and one of only 1000 built. One of less than 100 built in Alpine White. The C32 is less refined in its balance and handling but made up for it with monster torque. Minor pulley mods gave it even more power. Both were extrememly reliable. Am taking delivery of the SLK Monday. Looking forward to it like a kid at Christmas.
