Hello - and thanks for all the warm welcomes.

I'm new to Mercedes-Benz having recently purchased a very nice 2008 SLK 280. I spent the last 15 years tooling around, top-down, in my vintage Alfa Romeo Spider Veloce. As much as I love my AR, I was hankering for a modern 2-seater. And fell in love the look and feel of the SLK.
Born and raised in South Florida, now living on Florida's Treasure Coast with my wife and kids.
I'm looking forward to learning all I can about my amazing new sled from all you experts here on the Forum

Regards,

Mike

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.
