I'm Paul in Riverview, FL USA

We've owned MBs in the past and previous to our SLK300, we had a GLK250. Nothing but pure luck with the GLK and all of our MBs through the years. We've never taken a single car in for any warranty work, ever.

Earlier this year, we traded in the GLK for a new SLK and unfortunately the luck ran out at 967 miles, a SUV clipped the front. It's been sitting in the garage ever since and time to get it back on the road.

Current stable(in order of my driving preference ;) )

1987 Bertone X1/9 (garage queen)
2013 FIAT 500/Abarth (my daily driver)
2005 BMW Z4 (wife's current daily driver)
2007 Toyata Tacoma (Home Depot shopping cart)
2016 MB SLK2016 (n/a - in ICU for the time being)

X1/9? This is very interesting.
Never thought that such a car existed over that side of the world.
It was no1 on my desire list when I was young.
Never managed to get one.
