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.

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.

Welcome Chazbee! I too was a Cedes Virgin and got mine for my 60th Bday! Hubby has always had the fun little sport car and now we've reversed that...he has the truck and I have the fun little car. He has some spine issues that affect him and he talks about the SLK being so much more comfortable. I can only say that as a very petite female I have NEVER had a car fit me so well!
Last car my hubby restored was a 1976 Porsche 930 and I agree with your wife...I like this so much better!! He still misses his Crossfire but now we have some of that one back. LOL!
I think we will all enjoy our novice MB journey for sure!!
