Smile 2 New German Cars in 3 weeks...

Bought a 2011 VW Jetta Sportwagen TDI diesel on 12/13 as a daily driver.

Then sold my '08 Vette on 12/30 and replaced it today with an '07 SLK280. The car is a 1-owner MB Certified with 23K on it. I've owned a Porsche Carrera, the Vette, and lots of other "Play Cars" over the years but this is only the 2nd MB I've owned- the last being a 280 Sedan nearly 30 years ago. (I'm showing my age!!)

I kind of set out to look for something between an old 280SL and a 560SL roadster, but along the way this little Pewter SLK280 caught my eye.

Love the top, love the brown Nappa leather interior, the "air scarf" in the headrests and the 17" wheels! Beautiful car from nearly any angle. Just picked it up today.
