Greetings!

Just purchased a wonderful 2009 SLK 300, black, with 34k miles. Loving it so much. It survived the first Mercedes service visit with no makjor surprises. Just gave it the full Griot’s Garage exterior treatment, and the paint is smooth as glass.

So happy to be a Benz owner again (had a 300E years ago, and still miss it).

Thanks for all the help and info!

I lived in Florida for several years - school at USF in Tampa, worked in Ft. Lauderdale and Boynton Beach after graduation. Would be fun to drive down to meet some day when it’s safe again!

Thanks again, all, for the warm welcome.

Paul, do you frequent Coffee&Cars in Great Falls on Saturday mornings? Haven’t been in years, or since getting my SLK, but will try soon. My 300 feels just about optimum in power and handling for an old cruiser like me; can’t even imagine the 55 power...

I've never been, but would like to in the future. Unfortunately, it was cancelled last month due to COVID-19 concerns. The 55 has a lot of torque, but the curve is very flat. That, combined with the conservative throttle mapping, makes it one of the easiest to drive of high performance cars. I really liked the 300TE that my wife used to have, but, alas, it fell prey to rust.
