Looks nice, junior-Batman look

Saw a SLK55 today as I was driving near the Park Sheraton hotel on Chamiers Rd,
TN reg ending in 3, must have been this one

Nice improvement from the older SLK which was pure "hairdresser" material

Awesome car....

No wonder, Jeremy Clarksons review of the SLK55 AMG said -- "floats like a butter fly"

But then one query, are those OE floor mats ???

How ironic! A Volvo being a 'Safety Car'!

That SLK is brilliant! Love the quad pipes and the aggressive front end.

Guys, I work at Ambathur (HCL 4 office) which is right next to BMW & Mercedes showroom. From where I sit, I can see all the mercedes cars.

Since camera phones are no longer alowed inside our ODC I am unable to take any pics. But I would try to sneek in a camera and take some pics.

It would be a treat! There are almost 50 cars standing in the yard. There are also two accident ridden cars! totally smashed! totalled!

. Looking at all the other VWs parked next to it, I think I can hazard a guess that that Phaeton was around ferrying the bigwigs from Volkswagen India. I heard that they were there to finalise things for their Polo Cup racing series.
