Hello everyone,

My name is Alexander & I'm from the UK.

I have just recently purchased my first Mercedes & am really enjoying the experience.

The car is a SLK 55 AMG

Colour Black

Year 2005

33000 miles.

I have been used to driving Lotus cars having had:

Lotus Elise S1

Lotus Elise S2 RaceTech

Lotus Elise SC RGB 220

The first thing that I did was change all four tyres to the brand I like that are also MO fitment.

I have only had the AMG for a week & a half but have already driven it out to Belgium for a run which I really enjoyed it & am learning about the car day by day.

I have another car as my daily driver & will probably drive the SLK55 AMG at weekends.

Looking forward to enjoying the AMG experience. :grin:
