Hi folks!

I registered a while ago, but just made my first post today, so here I am to introduce myself.

I bought my SLK350 way back in 2005. I've loved it ever since.

I installed the first rev of the SmartTOP (from piecha) back in 05 as well. I just recently replaced it with the latest version, and am enjoying the extra functionality.

I'm in NJ, so there are 3-4 months during the year when I keep the car covered in my development parking lot. Alas, I do not have a covered garage to store it in, nor can I keep it plugged in to trickle charge.

But during the other 8-9 months, I am driving it around whenever it's not pouring rain, and have the top down whenever I can.

I mainly just drive it to and from work, and around and about nights and weekends. But about once every year or two I also take it up to Meadowlands for an autocross. I've won, placed, or shown in my car class every time. :)
