Since I was a teenager working at a local Mercedes dealer in NY, I promised myself that one day I would walk in and buy one. Well my dream became reality a few weeks ago when I took delivery of my new 350SLK. It is visually stunning and more fun to drive then any car I have ever owned. The rush of the wind with the top down and the Florida sun shining down is fantastic.
The power and speed is fantastic. 0-60 in about 5 secs. Great stereo with 7 disc CD player, which is excellent even with top down at highway speeds. My favorite feature is the top which does its own amazing dance as it lowers and raises. The car always draws admiring looks. The paint and new look is great.
I would move the cruise control stalk type lever further away from the turn signal lever. Its too easy to turn on cruise when trying to signal a turn.
