hey - hello everybody!

Proud owner of a 2005 slk55 AMG for a couple of weeks- having had a few fast cars in the past, this has something special!

Look forward to spending time here for tips and advice

Excellent! must admit - the Slk55 is a different kind of power. I had an e92 m3 and you really had to drive it hard to get it going hard - but the 55 has low range power. Love it - but could do with a bit more v8 volume!

Anyone know of the highpitch whine when starting up - and sometimes obvious when manouvering? Is it fuel pump or power steering? Also - what about a slight whistle (as if a tiny tube is letting out some air) when traveling slowly? It had a full service 3000 miles ago, and it runs like a dream - maybe im just getting used to its 'normal' sounds!
