Greetings from FL
Greetings from sunny FL. I have joined this forum to learn more about my "new to me" Mercedes. I am retired and finally have the time to own a sports car, after looking at many different cars I found a super deal on a 2000 SLK 230 Kompressor, in a very bright red. It appears the previous owner took excellent care of the vehicle, you could eat off any panel in the engine bay! I never knew Mercedes sold cars with manual transmissions, but this one came with a five speed. My wife really didn't want a convertible and this car fit the bill nicely. When my wife is with me the hardtop is up, when I am alone the top is down. I have only had the car for a short time but I am already in love with the way it rides and how quite it is for a convertible. I purchased the car from a dealer and it did not come with the owners manual, the dealer did say he would supply me with a new one but so far no luck. I did find a manual online and many of my questions were answered and I hope to find the answers to the rest of my questions in this forum.
SO...............thank you for having me
