Hello All,
I'm a new member looking to learn more about the SLK lineup, as I'm looking to purchase a 55 AMG. I currently drive a Hyundai Genesis Coupe that I have lightly customized, but I'm looking for something more refined, and the growl of a V8 never hurts. I'm looking forward to learning as much as possible about this model before I purchase and even more during ownership.

My current car:

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

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.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Greetings from Tennessee !

My advice is to drive as many of them as you can. Get to know the options available, but most of the 55's are decked out anyway. Service history is huge, as repair costs are significant. (You will have 16 spark plugs, pricey rotors, and a dealer network that doesn't blink at a $1,000 repair bill. :))

But you will have a rocket ship that goes top down in 20 seconds and can take any curve at twice the posted speed. The only problem will be wiping the grin off your face.

Welcome to the Forum

Hello from the Isle of Man:smile:

At one point I was tempted toward a Hyundai or Kia as both offer a lot of car for the money, and your steed looks pretty stunning, but in my book nothing beats the feel good factor of the Mercedes badge (especially when coupled with a convertible hardtop or an extra large sunroof)!
