Hi there

My name's Dave and I signed up for my first SLK today (a black 250CDI)

the car should be with the dealer around the 7th March and with me a couple of days after that

after a string of 7 MX5's I thought it was time for a change - my last car was rear ended by an A class last weekend and as I looked back at the 3 pointed star dangling from the shattered grille, I thought, mmm maybe time for a Mercedes

Although I test drove the new MX5 as the obvious replacement (and it was a total hoot) I felt that as a 50 something, 17st six footer I was starting to look a bit ridiculous sat on top of the car rather than in it

So here I am - really excited to be getting a proper grown up's car and looking forward to having the space to be able to flex my toes in the footwell for the first time.

Dave

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Welcome from the Midlands

Hi from Nottingham,
How about a first drive out and meeting some other SLKers?
See UK Region 13th March for a Breakfast. Should be a decent drive to get a feel for the Car. :grin:
