Hello people, Lissa directed me here...

My name is Ed, I have bought a 2007 350. She is called Kay. She has done all of 21K miles, and the condition reflects that... she was a millionaire's summer toy. Pic attached. The car has loads of bells and whistles, I've no idea which were standard, so I'm sorry if I'm saying the bleedin' obvious, it has an airscarf (very nice), tiptronic box, I think the lights (xenon) swivel with the wheel (or am I imagining things?), 18 inch alloys, and Harmon Kardon sound.

I bought the car because I have always liked them. I love the V6 sound, especially under the railway bridges in Shrewsbury. Vroom, vrooom.....

Wife and I would like to attend the Cheshire lunch on 18 May but we can't as it's our daughter's 18th that day. So, next time!!!

Ed! Hello! :grin:

Good to see you here. You'll find it a really friendly forum, with some very knowledgeable people.

Hopefully we'll be able to meet up at an event some a bit of a change being on four wheels instead of two! :wink:

Hi Ed,

Welcome from the Wirral.

The midweek lunch is an experiment on whether midweek would work, or not.

There'll be a weekend one for Cheshire later in the date TBA.

Good news is that the Midlands isn't far from you and the socialise big time and are very friendly.

We're looking at joining the Ironworks Museum, Oswestry show at some point.
Just up the road from you and wide variety of cars.

Naturally, the SLKs will likely be the biggest bunch ;)

Look forward to meeting you at some point.
