Hello All!!!!

I just took delivery of a used SLK250 in gray with black interior and a 6 speed manual transmission. As I type this my wife is taking it for a little drive to see what it can do.

This is our third Mercedes - first is a 2005 C230 that will go up for sale now - functionally this will replace that as my "fun car". 15 years and 175K miles on that C and I drove it like I stole it. Second is a '15 E that my wife got a couple years ago used off lease. Looking forward to tips and tricks here!!!!

I just opened up the spare tire section while cleaning my C230K. Looks like the wind deflector was never removed from the trunk! I wonder if the previous owner ever put the top down. I was concerned that I didn't get a wind deflector but there it was never used.
Congrats on your new baby. You will love it.
The previous owner may have preferred the "wind in the hair feeling". Or just wasn't aware of what they are. My wife's SLK 350 has the optional swing in plexiglass deflectors. The only time I use them is when pounding along on the freeway.
