Hey guys, I mentioned several months ago that I had this baby on order, well it did arrive last month and I have been enjoying it so much that I forgot to share it with you guys. For some reason, and I don't know if it's just me, the car looks like it sucks in pictures, but in real life it's breathtakingly beautiful. Somehow pictures don't do it justice.

Anyway, I got it just the way I want it, over 60k later. :)

yeah I got the sports package. Only difference is no gills on the front side and no aerowings. Other than that it's identical (besides lacking the engine, of course, lol).

I just didn't need a super engine. I'm amazed and happy with how powerful the one I have is! I can't imagine what a 55 must feel like. And there are so many police infesting this whole area that I wouldn't have fun speeding anyway, lol. I decided to save the extra money. Looks was a big reason for buying this car in the first place anyway, and I really wasn't after spending the most that I could. I'm also planning on just probably keeping the car for good, so resale value wasn't even an issue either.

Then congratulations, you've clearly made the right choice. It is a looker allright, especially since the economy in the u.s isnt that great of state and soaring gas prices; the SLK300 is the best compromise in your situation.

Wow, beatiful looking SLK300. That front bumper is killer. I think i'll have to get an 09 model for sure.

:tu:Super nice! Great color combination and all the good options. I'm really glad MB redesignated the SLK 280, SLK 300. The sports package is worth every cent. Congratulations and enjoy it.

If looks is what you are after, then you definitely got it with the AMG pkg, I really like the sharp lines. I think the SLK300 comes in manual transmission? That would be a perfect combo. 60K for a fully loaded SLK300, wow, price has really gone up. Enjoy your new beautiful SLK.

Congrats! That front bumper looks much better than the split lip default one.

Thanks for all the kind words guys! I'm very very pleased with the looks of this baby. :)

It was 45 base, but after you add everything (sports package, bi-xenon, airscarf etc) including taxes it's over 60k. It was kind of expected.

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum :bannana:

Hey Chadwick, the front of your SLK looks like it's the 2008 model because all the 2009 models have updated split lip front. So are you sure your car is 2009??? :gh:

Welcome to the site.

His car is a 2009 with the AMG Sport pack fitted so it doesn't have a split lip but a more 55 styled front end.

Oh I didn't know the 2009 Sport Package have a different styled front end. Thanks for clarifying that DansSlk. :)

My 2009 SLK350 with premium package in Obsidian Black has the split lip front end. I also like the heated neck area feature on the seats :le:

PS: Enjoy your ride Chadwick! Too bad we're not in the same city or I'd race you hehe :Beer:
