I've never heard anyone say "silk."

Do people say that?

I say Challenge since that is his proper name. SLK is too general. True, he is of the SLK family, but even his MBZ Master Mechanic affectionately refers to him as "Young Challenge"!

I call mine "the posh car" or "the silly car" or the "I'm doing my bit to speed up global warming car"

Unofficially, I use SLicK, but I normally say "my SLK", rarely "my Merc"...

"Silk" sounds kind of girlie, don't you think? :) What would that make a CLK or a CLS?

I'm always hesitant to call it a "Merc" as some might think I'm talking about a Lincoln.

Oh yeah, and those with SLs call them "sills" and those with CLs call them "kills" and those with CLKs call them "clicks" and those with MLs call them "mills" and I call my GL a "gull."
