Thanks for the warm welcome!

This is a great forum! I've been reading for a few weeks as I debated over car choices.

I wanted a second car just for zipping around and having fun. I considered a BMW Z4 but the lure of the hardtop was too much to resist so I went with the Mercedes. I got an SLK280 as I didn't feel I really needed a 3.5L engine just for zipping around for fun.

I also wanted to get a used car with low mileage in a very specific color: Caspian Blue, with light interior.

After looking and finding no choices locally I found a CPO SLK280 in Caspian Blue with Beige interior at a dealer in Seattle. I live in Phoenix so that was exciting working out the shipping logistics. That's a whole other story. It has no scratches and only 3000 miles. Nearly perfect!

I'm so happy with my car, although still figuring some things out, like how to get the menu pulled up for the iPod.

Thanks to everyone for the great welcome!

Cold Shot, that would be fun sometime. You might bring your wife if we did meet up. Even the most understanding woman might question why you were off meeting another blonde (it's not evident from my ID that I'm a woman :)

Your SLK55 would surely dust my SLK280 but I do admit to racing a little with a Porsche Boxster that wanted to give me a run for the money.

:biglaugh: Thanks for the heads up! Yes, she probably would be a little miffed. Thankfully, she loves the car and I have to fight her to drive it some days. Send me a private message if you want to meet up next weekend. Maybe a run up through Cave Creek. There's a great place for mexican food/drinks we could stop at.

Post some pix please when you guys and gals meet.

Maybe someone can arrange a 2 or 3 day meet for the Southwest region -- like California, Arizona and Nevada ( Cal-Zon-vada)? Where's a good central location?

Hmmmm, the plot thickens, Blond, drives SLK. Ya'll I think I'm gettin bacited (excited) here, pitures (pictures) are definately called for (the car ya'll, piturs of the car) dirty minded folks. Cold Shot, does the translation help? SLKinAZ, we disbanded the HE MAN WOMAN HATERS CLUB years ago (Little Rascals for you yunguns). Pleez accept all my humor, and comments as gender neutral (Bretta made me say that). Corse (Of coarse) when we boys figure out somethin thats better then (than) gurls, we shall put a bounty on gurls. (cept those that drive SLK or simular). BTW, Red neck translation dictionary is available on line, or just ax Cold Shot (he is really a good ol boy). I found an egg in the bed this mornin, must be Easter. Welcome again SLKinAZ. :biglaugh: :biglaugh: :tu: :tu:
