Hello. I'm all smiles today as yesterday I bought a 2008 SLK 55amg. Black on black/red with 30,000 km. Call it a mid life crises if you like I don't care 'cause I'm too happy. I've always liked the look of the R171 and started seriously looking this year for one. This one came up for sale, was a good deal so I jumped at the chance. What a fricken nice car! (please excuse my language, hard to hold in my enthusiasm) I've received many co-worker compliments on it ('sick ride' from a younger guy, I'll ask my kids if this is a good thing!) and many wanting a ride. I will indulge them, more time behind the wheel is a good thing.
