Orginally posted about a week ago but due to age I needed to re-register (oldtimers disease made me forget my password!!), so I have copied and pasted the original intro below (slightly edited for tense):

Picked up my new (2010) SLK200 on Sunday. First MB, first RWD , first coupe, first drop-top - lots of firsts. Wife already calls it my mid-life crisis car.
Once I decided I really couldn't justify getting a Jag XF or XE (95% of the time its just me in the car, the other 5% its me and the Mrs.) it was then a choice of which 2 seater. Looked at the Audi TT and the Mazda MX5 but once I test drove the SLK I was hooked.
Wont be great in the British winter but hopefully will make up for that in the summer!
