Hello!
I have a beautiful 2005 SLK350 with 6 speeds of fuuunnn located in Seattle, WA.
I got her in summer of 2020 because it was COVID summer and we stayed in Seattle riding with the top down since beach vacations weren't happening as much.
Before me she had the same owner who obviously babied her for 13 years. Then she got passed around for a few years until we met and now I wanna take care of her as best as I can!
(My SLK has a Japanese sibling but she's the fun one)
I love reading the forums here and looking to do some of the mods I have seen people post (the smart top!)
I have replaced the head unit with a unit from China that I was soooo apprehensive about, however it's been over 6 months and it's worked totally fine, sound quality is great and wireless apple carplay is where it's at!!
Can't wait to see you all on the forums as I ask so many noob questions.
Thank you!

Welcome from Portland, Oregon. Check out the SLK NW Group located under the clubs section of the forum. They are based out of the Seattle area and have several meets/events throughout the year. Enjoy the forum and the top down driving.

Good to have you on the forum. I was born & raised in Seattle. Lived in the Seattle/Tacoma area from 1949-1980, then Richland WA. until I moved to the Oregon coast in 2009. Where in Seattle do you reside? I lived on Queen Anne hill.
Welcome to the group.
