Hi all,
Well after a two week wait due to holidays, I finally collected my Slk 55.. 2012 in Dianond White, with red leather, and with a good spec. Plus 2 years warranty thrown in. Looks great. Had to go 250 miles to get it. Flew down to Brighton in 4hrs, and staggered all the way back on M25 M40 M6 M54.. Took 7 hrs.Hardly got over 60 anywhere, plus it pxxxxd down all day.. At least I had plenty of time to play with all the buttons etc. Due to the traffic etc. the car was in eco4 mode most of the time and returned 34mpg, so that's the economy side sorted..waiting for it to dry up now, then out for a run around Snowdonia.

Congratulations on getting your new 55. Enjoy!! Snowdonia has some great roads which will provide a better taste of the cars capabilities than the motorways. Look forward to seeing some photos. :smile:

Nice!
I bet you’re happy, I hope I’ll feel the same when I get myself a 55 soon.
It wasn’t the white one with black AMG multispokes from Harbour cars was it?
That is the only one i have looked at that that makes me want the 172 over the 171 lol
