R) Glad I found this community. I just picked up a 2008 350 on Friday from MB dealer. For years I was searching for a convertible but there was always something holding me back. I was hipnotized by the Z350 for years. When I recently read posts on the Z370 about overheating issues, cheap oil cooler,etc, I had to abandon that dream car. I realized that I had to eliminate the ragtop and go for a hard top. And it had to be a roadster. And it had to have about 300hp. I searched for over month to understand the different SLK packages/colors. Last Monday, I decided to try a 350 from MB Tysons Corner, VA. This is exactly what I was looking for.

My plans are to get familiar with various mods, possibly adding a bit more power (K&N, etc). Any pointer on threads about mods that will void the warranty or cause trouble at the dealer. I have 4 years/100k MB coverage.

Glad to be here.

welcome from washington DC!
try slkstore.com for drop in air filters. Green Filters seems to be the way to go.

Welcome Michael, I'm also from northern VA-Falls Church. I have an extra pair of used K&N filters for sale if you are interested. They've been cleaned and re-oiled properly.
