We are newbies from Westerville, Ohio USA to the wonderful world of Mercedes Benz.
After driving a PT Cruiser Convertible during an April 2007 visit to Maui, HAWAII, we decided to look for a Convertible for our home use. We decided on our first Mercedes Benz Convertible in June, 2007, a 1998 SL-500 with 65,000 miles on it. After a little bit of fine tuning and replacing the racing tires with something a little more practical, this has been a wonderful ride.
Last week, (16-OCT-2008), we bought a new (to us) 2006 R-350 with 4 wheel drive, 13,500 miles on the clock, and lots of room so we can be more comfortable traveling across country. (Of course, we are keeping our SL-500!)
We really love the Mercedes' and we really enjoy meeting the people who drive them, pretty much like we enjoy meeting all the people who ride BMW Motorcycles and other brands when we go to motorcycle rallies.
We look forward to meeting lots of MB owners in the coming years as long as they are not too picky about whether we show up in our SL500, R350, or K-100-LT.
Ride hard and Ride Far!
