Hi everyone, I’m new to the forum, but not Mercedes!

Collecting a 2017 SL400 next week, and can’t wait as it’s been a few years since my last. In the past I’ve enjoyed a wide selection of Benz, from SLK to SLS Coupe, and I can honestly say I loved them all.

I’ve not joined a Mercedes forum before, but having read through a few relevant and useful posts, I’m really pleased to be a member and look forward to contributing and helping if I can with some positive input. 😎

Thank you Happtalk73. Will do, must admit I’m quite excited! I really enjoyed my previous SL 400 which was the earlier model, so looking forward to seeing how they have have improved it.

Actually next week is a really busy week to be collecting a new car, as we are moving from Cornwall to Cumbria. Good time for a complete change 😎

Wow, that’s some move. Good luck with car and house. 👍

Where in Cumbria? (We’re just about 15 miles from Carlisle)

Absolutely, 470 miles!

We’ve bought a house in a small village south of Wigton on the edge of the national park. We’re primarily moving to be closer to my eldest daughter and my grand kids as we have missed them growing up because Cornwall was just so far to easily visit them😢. Must admit I don’t know the area at all other than occasional visit to the Lake District. Also looking forward to exploring the beauty of Scotland which we haven’t visited for many years. We chose the SL as it will be ideal for touring our new area, we are both really looking forward to exploring.

You’ve picked a lovely area there. I’m sure you’ll soon settle in and will be fab for all to be closer to your family.

look forward to you popping in for a cuppa with the SL when your nearby. 👍

Thank you, looking forward to discovering new places to enjoy.

We strongly considered SW Scotland, stunning! Unfortunately just too far from my daughter ☹️

Where in South West Scotland are you based?

Hi SmartAmg, thank you, much appreciated, just about finished packing - exhausted! Will do, can’t wait to photograph her in some beautiful locations👍.

Collecting her from a specialist dealer near Harrogate, praying for dry weather so we can have the top down and enjoy enjoy some open top driving home to Cumbria 😎

Welcome! It's good to have another SL400 owner on board!

Hi, a few members have asked for any images of the car, here are some from the dealer where I bought the SL. One owner 10,000 miles, fmbsh, totally mint inside and out. Never had a Black on Black colour scheme before, last SL400 was Diamond White with Bengal Red interior, thought we would go for something different. Not many options, but included the two important ones that my wife demanded - reversing camera, and airscarf that we have had on several other Mercedes roadsters over the years, really great for those cold winter sunny days! 😎

Every time I look at the photos I get excited - can’t wait to collect her 😍
