Please allow me to introduce myself. For practical purposes I go by the name Roxanne. I live on the Eastern side of the US and after tinkering with old VWs for the last 15 years or so, I decided to delve into the world of MB. A friend of mine, a 60 something YO man who's father was NUTS of Mercedes, has warned me for years not to tangle with them. But here I am. I have an 05 SLK 350 and it is absolutely the nicest car I have ever owned. I never paid attention to MB until I married someone who owns an e320. After driving the car on a several state trip, I thought wow, this thing is very comfortable. I hit a deer in my Mazda, and the ins. company totaled it. Suddenly I found myself without a convertible and started looking. The SLK entered my life and I fell in love all over again. I have looked at this site a few times lately and a recent problem has prompted me to seek the advice of it's members. I feel like I can be an active participant and I look forward to reading through the threads and learning from all of you.
