Picked up the new car in Houston yesterday! I've driven it about 140 miles so far, mostly interstate. Like the car a lot! Handles well and very little wind noise!
Got the windows tinted and a clear bra installed. Filled with gas, and now ready to enjoy!!

Whoo Hoo! Enjoy! Nothing like the first few drives in a new car. Love the white color / contrast with the black trim elements.

What's the SLK feel like compared to the Z06? Size, handling, speed?

CT, lots of difference between this car and the z-06. This one is much more refined, quite, and classier. The Z-06 has about 90 more horsepower and weighs about 1,000 lbs. less. So the Z-06 is much faster. However the AMG seems more stable to me. The Z-06 has much more trunk space, but the AMG is much quicker to maneuver.

They are really just totally different cars. The Corvette a brash, loud, "in your face" race car. The AMG is a refined, high end roadster that is plush and very fun to drive!

Regards!
