After giving Mabel a wash and dry this morning, I took a top down drive before stopping in for lunch at a nearby restaurant with the family. Only 5c but dry, and I was cosy enough with the seat and heater turned on. :)

Me Sir, I did, And best of all, I remembered to wipe the roof dry before I folded it into the boot! Also bought a dehumidifier bag from Halfords to see if I could dry out the interior a bit after the last time I used it roof down and forgot to wipe the roof and filled the boot with water! It was a really bright day but ye gods, it was cold.

It's been raining so much in Florida because of global warming, definitely not a hoax so whenever I get the opportunity to put the down top even for 5 minutes I'll take it.

Driving with the top down while the sun is out does so much for my vibration . Great way to meditate 😊

It was 37F this AM on the drive to work, but it was sunny and not much cloud in the sky, so down came the roof. At my daily Starbucks shop, one barista remarked that it must be fun to drive top down in the cold while sun was up. I responded, yup... with heat vents, air scarf and bum warmer on, it sure is fun.... wanna come join me? :D

I thought I'd see just how much oomph the little growler has in sports mode and if the changes occur on the redline. It's oomphy and they do ;)
I'm starting to feel a little annoyed that I didn't get a 350 given that they cost the same money :unsure:
But I'd only get into more trouble quicker, so I think I'm in the right car 💓

I love my 250 but I wish I had gotten the 350! My next SLK will definitely be a red 350 😍

I put the top down today during rush hour headed to Publix to get some cheesecake = big mistake! Heavy traffic is so nerve-wracking and lot of stares set off my anxiety!

@Melania How horrible for you. I hate it when that happens. Hope you’re feeling better now.
