"New" owner, member from Indy.

Hello, this is MGalo. I drove my "new" '06 SLK 350 home 5 weeks ago and have been learning on other forums when I "heard" of benzworld. I look forward to learning more and eventually sharing what I've learned with other "newby's".

Thank you both! I've already been to the R171 area. The "other" forum is SLKWorld, and I've learned a great deal there. I look at these sites as "continued education". I've had and worked on cars since the mid-late 60's and this is my first Benz. I wasn't really looking for a Benz(or ANY other car to be honest), but my MR2 Spyder was using oil at a higher rate than I wished to fund. I saw "my" SLK in the local paper, took it for a short test drive, thought about it, made my offer 1 week later on a Friday night. I drove it home 3 days later... It looks very nice in my drive;
