Hi folks, I am the owner of a R171 2006 SLK 55 AMG. I am the first owner of this car. I bought it on July of 2005, as a 2006 model. This car is my third Mercedes roadster. My first roadster was an iridium silver 2001 R170 SLK 320 which introduced me to the Mercedes marquee. This was after owning a series of different, heavily modified, BMW's. This little roadster really changed my perception of what a Mercedes should be, or was, to my eyes. With the introduction of the 2003 R170 AMG SLK 32, I was so impressed by the performance figures and its specs, that I gave the 320 to my mother, and didn't hesitate to get the first SLK AMG 32 that reached my local Mercedes Benz dealer. In 2005 I bought the SLK 55 AMG and for some reason I stopped there. The R172 and The new SLC have not been enticing enough to trade up. Shortly I will share with you my SLK transformation story. "From mild To wild".

Cheers!

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.
