Hello everyone. Just ticked one item off my bucket list when I bought an SLK55 AMG. It is a 2005 model having covered just 37,000 miles and is immaculate inside and out. I bought it from Dave in Stroud and clearly he had devoted a lot of time to looking after it, thanks Dave.
I am looking forward to the better weather coming so I can really enjoy it.

Hi and welcome from the UK Midlands! :)

Great choice of car by the way!... My 2005 SLK 55 AMG has around 38,000 miles on it now, about 13,000 of which I've done since I bought it 17 months ago! :D
