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.

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 Hillsboro, Oregon! You'll find a couple of other forum members from Edmonton here, and a couple from Calgary as well. We will be coming through both cities on vacation in early September, so if you see an SLK with Oregon plates it's certain to be us.

Welcome from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. My wife and I had a reaction similar to yours - we had already bought the car and the more we drove it the more we realized what a great car it is !

Howdy from just down the road a wee-bit in Calgary. Raining here today so no top down time in the little roadster for me. I drove my 2500HD truck instead :crying:

Hi ther from Summerland BC. I completely agree with your excitement. We got our 350 last year. I am watching every day to see if the street sweepers have been by to clean off the gravel so I can get out and blast around. If you're in the Okanagan sometime, give us a call.
