.........and of course it is pouring rain[:(]

The dealer called me at 8 PM last night to tell me they had just taken my car off the truck and would be inspecting it and prepping it today. I am supposed to pick up in the morning. But it is supposed to rain here (meaning lots of accidents - remember Southern Californians do not know how to drive in the rain - mud slides, rock slides[:0])for the next 5 days). I plan to drive it home verrrry carefully and put it in the garage until the sun comes out so no pictures until then.

Hoorayyyyyyyyyyyyy

Congratulations. Sorry to hear about the bad weather. I know how you feel. I drove mine home (late November) and haven't been able to drive it much thanks to our winter weather. Hopefully a nice sunny spring is just around the corner for all of us.

Welcome to the world of big, wide grins!

As soon as you get inside, your joy will radiate around the whole of California - come rain or shine!

I hope you have many hours of motoring pleasure!

I am very sorry to inform you that you have now contracted SSS.
Stupid Smile Syndrome. Symptoms include a lead foot and silly grins on your face.
Unfortunately the only treatment (more driving) seems to produce more of the diseas.
I am so sorry.... [:D][8)]



P.S. Congrats!

LOL[:D][:D][:D]

I will be my sales person's worst nightmare tomorrow. I think he thinks I am going to come in, sign the papers, jump in the car and go. But thanks to this forum, I am now aware of all the potential ptoblems to look for and have printed out the previous posts listing the things to be aware of. I may be there hours! Poor salesman[}:)][}:)]

I am also picking up the plexiglass windscreen and getting my name on the notification list for the Ipod Integration Kit which may be available in April/May[:p][:p]

Are u leasing.
if so, may be u shouild wait couple more days to see if the slk has a better mony factor for the month of march. My car gets here in march and my dealer mentioned the mony factor thing. The word is because of the wether many slk fromn the est coast have been transfered to us to generates more sales. with that all dealers have several slk in stock. and the majority of us are orddering our cars with the color and opptions we need, therefore, the dealers are sitting on alot of slk. just my thoughts.besides the wether succks now ....:)

No, I am not leasing but how would the money factor be any different for leasing than buying?

Congratulations. You will indeed be smiling a lot especially when you get behind the wheel. I still feel like a giddy kid when I am driving mine.

Sorry [:I].

A sheila can be a mate, but you're right in that we usually only address blokes as "mate".

Cheers,

I've been to Australia several times and I don't think any one has ever called me a "mate". Wouldn't mind though.

Hi Malibuite-
I too am picking up my new slk soon... and I've been keeping up with these message boards. What things are you going to negotiate on? We should compare notes!

malibuite (and those with garaged SLK's in bad weather):

The beauty of the retractable top is that we can capture those times between weather, like todays rain with a little break and enjoy the whole world around us...[:D][8D][:D]

Here's today's driving between meetings...top down and a little airscarf for comfort...love it[;)]

Not quite that nice here today ...see our waterspout below[:0] I don't mind driving in the rain...I just mind getting hit by someone doing 90 on a rain slick road. I swear these people do not know how to drive in the rain. Will not risk my new car. Sun will return next week and then probably no more rain till next December[8D][8D]
