Ok, it is here, finally, yea baby!

History:
Positional order/interest at multiple MB dealers in Oct '04
Call from one in Jan with an in process order I could claim, but not my options or color
Call from closest MB dealer in Feb, with a 2nd wk April build slot
Charge card deposit charged 2/21/05 ($500)
Started production 4/6 (a little early, yea!)
Car finished production moved to port 4/14
Due to Jacksonville Port 5/1
Arrived Port 5/2
On VPC hold, bumper scratch in transist, no repaint, must replace, boo!
Bumper replaced, moved from VPC to car carrier (trucking), 5/6
Scheduled to dealer (Austin, TX), 5/12
Arrived morning 5/13 (today!)
Should pick up this afternoon after PDI.

SLK55 AMG - Obsidean Black (metallic black), Black/Red interior, Entertainment, Nav, Lighting, Premium, Airscarf, basically everything avail in US except phone and Sirius.

My first MB.

List price (though dealer kept talking about how the AMG is demanding above MSRP due to supply vs allocation).

Good price on my trade-in: 2002 Lexus SC430

I should be able to post pics this w/e. I'll spend the w/e putting on miles (to clear break-in) and Zaino'ng.

Only changes considering are:
chrome front grill (the big part) to make the black grill area have more definition
clear bra
tinting, maybe
and of course the vaporware roof controller, if it ever arrives on earth

Thanks so far for all the info and excitement from y'all in following this forum.

And yes I did have to buy a second copy of C/D, as the print smeared on the first copy from the drool and tears and....nevermind

Hi all,

I have been keeping an eye on this forum for the post 3 months since I placed my order for my SLK350, anyway it arrived at the dealer today.

Here are some pics I took with my phone. I'll post some better ones after I take delivery on wednesday. Hope you like.

bloflin,

Congratulations. The photo of your reflection on the hood (bonnet)looks as if the hood was chrome plated. Fantastic shine.
