Greetings!

Was driving through a car lot last Friday evening and spotted an 2005 SLK55 AMG. I test drove it and bout it 20 minutes later i had bought it

This will be my first convertable, my 2nd AMG, previously owned an 2002 C32, and will be my 7th Mercedes. The SLK seems like it's going to be an fun car. Wife keeps trying to convince me that I bought it for her... LOL!

Looking forward to learning more about my new SLK out here on slkworld.com!

Cheers!

Welcome from central Florida. Nice purchase story. In regards to whether the car is for you or the wife, our story is just the opposite, I purchased it for her, but it is really my toy.

Hi, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:


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.

Welcome from sunny Florida. Your story parallels mine rather closely. I've had my '07 SLK55 for a bit over 3 weeks now. She was so pretty, and the deal too sweet, to pass up.

Lots of knowledge and great tips to be found here. Have fun reading the manual. I'm still trying to digest mine. :wink:
