Post Greetings From South Carolina

I have owned several Mercedes over the years but never felt the need to participate in a forum as they have been extremely reliable cars including my (wife's) current daily driver a 2008 E320 Bluetec. On the other hand, I have also owned many British sports cars which require a lot of care, feeding, technical support, and Forum time. I finally decided to purchase an R170 SLK since I really like the style of the R170. After quite a bit of searching, I found a 2001 SLK320 in Florida with 17,000 miles (Snowbird car). I am currently checking and sorting through any age related issues rather than the typical wear related ones. So far, so good, but I am getting very familiar with various issues that can develop with the R170. Hope to consume and contribute.
