Thumbs up New car and new member

I just purchased a 2006 MB SLK350 about 1 week ago. I drove about 200 miles to Atlanta to test drive it. This was the first time that I drove a SLK350 as there were no cars like this in Greenville, SC. I found it on Autotrader and the description, pictures, features and price are what attracted me to the car. I previously had a 2001 Porsche Boxster and wanted another small, two seat convertible sports car. After a short test drive I knew that I wanted this car. So after a little bit of negotiation I drove off with my first Mercedes-Benz.

Each time I drive the car I love it just a little bit more. I thought the airscarf was a gimmic at first but now that the temperature is in the 30s I don't know how I lived without it. There's nothing like driving to work with warm seats and warm air gently blowing onto your neck. Fantastic!

The car only had 5100 miles on it when I bought it so it still has 20 months of warranty or 44,000 miles. Before I left the dealership I purchased a 4 year extended warranty. I was concerned about all the moving parts with the car, specifically the convertible roof. So now I shouldn't have any worries through 2014.

I think this is going to be one great car for me.
