Just wanted to say hi, will be getting my 2001 SLK next week. I've had some sort of convertable since my first car which was a 1957 Ford. Now that was quite a few years ago. I just sold my last one a few months ago and that one was a 2008 GT500 Shelby Cobra. I missed that so much as when my grandson decided to trade his SLK for a new car I asked him if he wanted to sell it to me. Done deal. Will be happy to pick it up.
