Newby SLK owners questions

Hello All,

I joined this forum to mainly get information about the SLK roadsters. Living in a very warm state I enjoy convertables and the one that really keeps catching my eye is the SLK. I seem to be cursed with liking cars that are considered "girls cars" buts that a whole different discussion. For some any convert seems to fall into that catagory...I'm not sure why...

I would love to own this car but am dissapointed at the consumers ratings I keep running across. I've never owned a Mercedes, or any car as prestigious, so this would be a big leap for me to take. The more I read forums about various cars I like the more confused I get. So I would like to hear from people who actually OWN and drive these cars.

I would have to try to stay in the 2005 and 2006 models for price reasons. Could any SLK owners just give me some information on their cars....reliability being first, enjoyment, satisfaction, pros and cons....etc.

I would appreciate it....again I've never owned a Mercedes so I feel a bit nervous about what I might be getting into. Thank you for any help.
