Hi All,

I'm a huge MB enthusiast and I live in Brazil, I have (and had) a few MBs and I'll start with one of my passions, the X204.

Here in Brazil, we had the GLK 280 4MATIC from (2008 to 2009), GLK 300 4MATIC (from 2010 to 2012), GLK 300/350 4MATIC (from 2013 to 2015) and the GLK 220 4MATIC (from 2013 to 2015 - in two versios, basic and sport).

I had a 2009 GLK280 4MATIC (which, together with the GLK300 pre-facelift) is basically the same car as the GLK350 in the US with just a few differences, it was a iridium silver and I bought from the dealer in 2011 with 40.000km (around 25.000 miles) and it was, probably, one of the best cars I've ever owned. Exactly 1 year ago, end of 2018, I sold it with 100.000km (around 62.500 miles) and, after I made this mistake, I started to think that I would not find another GLK in the same conditions as mine.
Fast forward one year, I found a 1 owner 2012 GLK300 4MATIC with only 43.000KM (around 26.800 miles) in a quite rare color for this chassis here, Palladium Silver, with and the bell and whistles, with impeccable maintenance and all the seals (even the jack had the original seal!), so I had to bring it home.
The main difference between the GLK 280 and GLK 300 are: Panoramic sunroof, Xenon ILS headlights and LED on the front bumpers, everything else is exactly the same - even the M272 3.0 V6 231hp engine.

Below you'll find some photos of my X204:

These photos were taken after I bought it and had a technical polishing, repainted the wheels in iridium silver as well as the brake calipers and ceramic coated with Feynlab.

I hope you guys like it and feel free to ask any questions regarding the MB market here in Brazil and, hope I can help you as well with anything you may need.

Best for all.

Congratulations!

I have a ‘12 North American 350 in palladium silver, as well! A 3.5l version of yours, though I have the can fog lights, and not the LED DRLs.

We have a few dozen GLKs in my town, but only one other in the same paint color. Definitely my favorite of the available colors, and just feels like the proper color for the body style.
