Hello World > My first post here. Just got my bucket list car: 2009 SLK350 CPO. (36K on the ticker) Black. I am in love. I also have a brand spanking new ML350 Bluetec in the driveway. In February I had turned in my c300 lease and it was a real bear finding the used MB inventory I wanted. Finally, I found her. My journey with MB products started with a 1968 Unimog 404s 1.5 Ton troop transporter, purchased at auction in Switzerland. (and since sold to a restorer - * sniff * )

I am interested in performance modding my SLK with the usual suspects:

1. Headers, Exhaust, Performance Cat
2. ECU remapped
3. AMG black 20' wheels that came with the AMG SLK
4. Anything else fellas?

I am excited to become part of this community and learn all I can about our vehicles. I am pretty good with the German language and understand getting custom auto parts imported into the country (through customs etc).

So for now, put the top down, and Enjoy the ride!

-Best Regards
