Hello everyone - just bought my first ever MB at the age of 62! It's a 2011 R172 SLK200 with the AMG sportpack,comand etc. Just moved from 7 years of Porsche 911 (996) ownership so a lot to live up to but so far impressed.Obviously not as fast as the Porker but still surprised how well it goes especially in sport mode. Change forced on me by muscle wasting disease which made steering and particularly braking difficult on older 911. The SLK addresses both problems so looking forward to extending my driving enjoyment by a few more years! ??? Having been an avid reader of Porsche forums I was pleased to find that this great forum existed and I look forward to reading and contributing if I can. PS - My wife likes it more than the P.
