Hello all:grin: Glad to be here as I am new to the world of Mercedes and let me tell you (as if you don't already know), nothing compares and yes you get what you pay for. Bought my 2012 SLK 350 last summer; Iridium Silver, Bengal Red, Sport Package, Pan Roof, Fully loaded with everything you can get on this year and model except for backup camera. Was looking to buy new, but the dealers do not work with you so I bought used. I got the exact same car that I was looking at on the showroom floor with a sticker price just shy of $70k new, for $39491 OTD with ONLY 3,300 miles on it (showroom condition):laugh: Ya I wasn't taking the new car hit this time. I let the other guy do it for me, as I used to be the one to always take the loss. This car is a keeper for me, my last. There is no other out there that compares or interests me more (that I can afford). I will know her like the back of my hand (as I have with all my vehicles), and I will learn what I don't. I will share my knowledge, experiences, and info gathering with fellow members. Yes I am a car guru with mechanical skills and I get deep into it, prefer to do things myself anyhow. Hope I can be a valuable contribution to this valuable tool of a website full of like minds:wink:

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.

Thank you all for the welcome, good to be here. Ya warranty is up the 11th of June. I love when warranty time is up>:D, that is the start of MOD TIME. Just one problem with these SLK's though, there are hardly any aftermarket mods for these cars. I guess there is just no comparison to Mercedes performance straight out of the factory. For all the ones that are out there, not falling for that racket (too little gain for too much $). So, I guess I'm going to go easy on her and do all the light things I can. If I'm lucky maybe I can squeeze an extra 10-20HP out of her. Don't really matter though as I am pleased with the performance straight out of the box and I just jumped out of a 420HP V8 and climbed into a 305HP V6. Gonna dig deep into you guys conversations and see what I can find good out there:nerd:
