Went out car shopping about 6 months ago after my car broke down. I had no idea what I wanted I only knew I didn't want a family car. I saw a Mercedes in the ads so I went to look at the car at a dealership. I had no idea it was a convertible. I got excited but didn't purchase that car. I went through a few dealerships high miles high prices. I was ready to give up. I picked up my phone and saw that the Mercedes Dealership had just brought in a SLK wasn't even priced yet. I went to go look at the car the miles were incredibly low. It was almost brand new with a bigger engine from all the other models I had looked at & this car was in complete mint condition. The price felt more like a gift. I drove away with the car completely humbled by the experience.
