Hi All, I picked up a "new to me" 2009 slk300 about a month ago with 80k km's on it. Awesome car. Have since put another 2k onto it. Nothing like feeling young again, especially when your getting close to 70 years of age. :smile: I have had a Mercedes in the past so I had an idea what to expect. It was a 1973 450 SL that I brought back to showroom condition and then sold it because I didn't want to watch it deteriorate. This past week I picked up a daily driver GLA250 which has 40k km's on it. Love that one too.

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.

Welcome from BC Canada.
You will find out that Mercedes makes a pretty good in cabin air filter for those days when the " Wack air is a bit off " .
