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.

Hello, Cyndi - and welcome to the website. Like you, I've only been a member for a couple of days.

That car looks great - did you have to look far to find one to match your hair colour? But remind your children that it's most definitely your car - so they shouldn't even think about asking to drive it!

My experience of Florida has mostly been at Cocoa Beach when visiting Patrick AFB (and Ron Jon's surf shack, plus the original Hooters at Clearwater when visiting MacDill AFB, of course!). The only times I've been to Jacksonville were to Navy Jax - but I got the impression that your weather is more SLK-friendly than it is over here in the UK!

Have fun!!

Thanks! I have a friend who's the GM at the MB dealership here and had him looking! I was actually wanting the white with beige but when he came across this color combo I fell in love. LOL The interior does match my hair.

Any yes, the weather here in FL is very nice for SLK driving! Much nicer than UK! Take care!
