I recently traded my Lexus LS460 to a SLK350. (Blk on Blk) What a transportation shock!! But I would not go back to the LS if I had to give up my SLK. I LOVE to drive it (even my wife likes to drive it), and I enjoy noticing the admiring stares as I pass by. I have had several convertibles in the past, and I wanted one more before I get too old to enjoy the thrill of the open road in an open top. By the way, I am 74 years old and my wife is 73.
