Well, I'm done. Stick a fork in me. That just happened.

I was seduced.



2007 Mercedes SLK-280. Power retractable hard top. 3L V6. 6 speed. 40k miles.

Incredibly fun to drive. It was a little more than I wanted to spend, but I got what I consider to be a good deal. In the end, I liked this one the best, so I bought it.

I'm happy grin

Besides its sedanhood, the BMW also displayed a known "metallic ticking" engine defect. Apparently, you have to get it fixed under warranty or it's $4,000 for a new head. BMW is saying that it's not really a problem, but they're still fixing it under warranty. Hmmm. Don't want me a ticking engine.

Nice! Out of nowhere comes a dark horse, another Teutonic option that proved impossible to resist.

Now you can get a refund on your plane ticket and drive cross-continent to Dwight!

Very good, Tom; enjoy. A bit of a dark horse candidate, but it probably would have been my second choice of all your possibilities.

Very nice Tom! I certainly forgot all about the SLK's, great choice and I think you will have some fun with that beauty.

Sweet! I've noticed that your car gets cooler every time you pick me up at the hotel when I'm in Seattle.
