1998 SLK 230
New to MB world

Hello Everyone, my name is Rod and my wife and I are proud owners of our first Benz, A 1998 SLK 230 that was imported to Canada from Japan. I was surprised to learn Mercedes had a plant in Japan. We had been avid bikers and I've ridden motorcycles for over 50 years. However, neither of us are any longer healthy enough to ride so we decided to sell the bike and purchase a roadster convertible for us to enjoy for the summer months. We've nicknamed the car "Silver" relating to it's color and the famous words of the Lone Ranger, "Hi Ho Silver Away" I have to say that every drive in this car increase our enjoyment and appreciation of it.
