Hello all, Patrick here. 13 months ago I was looking for a practical 3rd car. My wife and I have 5 kids and the other cars we have are a 2012 Nissan Quest mini van to haul the crew around in and a 2002 Nissan Maxima that I bought new in December 2001. I love that care. 256K miles and going strong.

Anyway, our oldest had turned 16 and with activities and what not we needed another car so she could help drive kids around. I started looking for a car with great gas mileage. Then looking an pick-ups to carry our crap around in. Then looked at convertibles, just as a distraction. Looked at the great value to be had (IMO) on a R170 Mercedes....fell in love, test drove a couple and had purchase a "practical" two seater a couple of weeks later. A beautiful 2001 SLK 320 with 80K miles

I LOVE this car. My wife and I are able to escape for day long and weekend road trips every so often. I've had a couple issues from time to time, as I expected with a 12 year old car but in general, I could not be happier. Those issues have led me to the forum from time to time and I figured it was time to come out of the wood work and announce myself.

Welcome to the elite SLKWorld forum!

Just a few suggestions to make your time here a fun and informative experience...

The "Search" feature at the top right of the page is for searching the forum. Many questions have already been asked and answered by our knowledgeable members.

If you are having difficulty finding a solution, you can post your question in the appropriate discussion forum. By doing this, you should receive a quicker response, but please be patient as the forum is worldwide and members live in different time zones.

It's easy to obtain the posts by clicking on the New Members Introduce Yourself Here section and just welcome the new members (like we welcomed you).

To post a picture, either start a new thread or reply to one, type what you want to say and click on the 'paper clip' just above, this will open a window to your left, click on 'browse', go to your pictures, and double click on the one you want to post, click on 'upload' and then 'submit' your post.

If you like a comment or want to thank another member for their post, there's a 'like' button to the right and just below is the 'thanks' button.
