Hi all. FYI this is actually my wife's car but I bought it for her and will obviously be the one modifying and caring for her.
I actually won this car at the Barret Jackson auction. It's an 05 SKL-350 Auto black on black with 25k miles on it.
The auction was fun! I'll definitely do that again! I'm already learning from folks in here and look forward to learning more about this car.
Thanks all.

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.
Also vote or enter our Ride of the Month competition: ROTM Submissions & Voting - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

I must confess I love customizing all my cars so I'm obsessed with this one too even though it's not mine!
Now based on the replys here I must know more about shorty antenna options and yes...the smarttop!
I love personalizing these cars...gives me something to do ;)

Welcome from...South Florida! I was at the Barrett-Jackson auction on Thursday the 12th, but I don't recall seeing or hearing anything about being able to win a car. I don't suppose that is too surprising, as there is so much going on at that auction. You'll be able to learn many things from this website, so enjoy!
