Thanks folks, the SmartTop has moved to the top of list.
Has anyone had experience with converting the the phone system to Blue Tooth? The idea of a set of useless buttons on the the dash makes me ill. My research found this http://www.incartronics.com/
Just curious if anyone has used this or anything like it.
Yes i Seconded the MODS4CARS as a first mod. The cheapest place to get a hold of one is Elitepro1.com. I have been more then pleased with Elite pro since buying the Smart Top, i have bought a few other mods from them and they never seem to impress me. Diffidently more them recommend them, for anything you need for your car!
I fly out to SoCal on Thursday and my new (to me) SLK 55 is delivered on Saturday!
My east coast car is a Turbo Charged Miata, this should be an interesting contrast.
I'll spend a few minutes going over the bits and pieces before lighting up the tires! (not really)
Any suggestions on greeting the new beast?
Congratulations kjax. Make sure all the electronic gadgets work and listen for "cat's cry" in the engine compartment when the engine is fired up (to make sure there's no idler pulley problem, not common in the 55).
I had every intention of taking pics of the delivery, I reached the lot to meet the delivery truck (big car carrier needed space to maneuver) the car was already off of the truck and I was momentarily disappointed... then I got a good look at the dust covered beast... I kept saying to myself "self... take pics" but all I could do was think about the keys.... the delivery guy was walking me through all the little rubs and scratches he had noted on pick up, it was all so minor and all I could think of were the BLOODY KEYS!
Finally he hands them over I start her up and I'm swooning... my fiance is smiling and I'm just stunned! Top goes down... bag in trunk and we're off... I drop her at her hair appointment and I'm off to the hand car wash... and I'm saying to myself..."self take pics!!" Yeah as soon as the guys bring it around shiny, clean and polished, I'll take pics... "sir your keys" "thanks looks great!" (take pics....) nahhhh got to drive, got to drive!!! and I did for about an hour and a half, got the call to pick up the fiance, swung through, slowed enough for her to jump in and off again! Man this ride ROCKS!
I love my Miata it's a great sleeper once that beast spools up and gets going it is awesome, but the refinement and civility of the SLK is unrivaled, at 120 I'm thinking of Croissants and Jam, thats just wrong... so forgive me folks I do promise that once the serotonin levels find their way back to some semblance of normal I will post pics.... until then... "I am therefore I ride!"
