Exclamation Reminder: SLU Transitioning To Mercedes Fan Site in May

Just a reminder that SLU will be changing over to a Mercedes SL class fan site starting on May 1, 2015. The current forums will be closed during the transition to make way for new forums related to all things Mercedes, from how to park diagonally so no one scratches your car to how to properly shame people next to you at traffic lights.

I have really enjoyed focusing on Second Life for the past 12 years, but it is time to move on to something more lucrative and exciting. As an avid car enthusiast, the change in focus is essential to my continued interest.

As a benefit, I am an affliate of Mercedes-Benz USA and can get excellent discounts on new and used Mercedes for you. Also, your purchase of Mercedes cars will help to support the site.

Thank you again to everyone. It has been an incredible ride. A 2015 Mercedes SL convertible is an even better ride, though.

The only constant is change.

For a second there I though it was going to be a site devoted to Mercedes de Acosta, the lover of Tullah Bankhead, Isadora Duncan and Greta Garbo, in which case count me in

Dear Cris

I love it, if you could buy me a restored gull wing?

But I'm not greedy; I'd be perfectly Happy if you could
ship one of these to my door.



I prefer it in a dark red please.

My main concern is having cross-over drama from a Volkswagen or Audi site. I mean, it's only going to take one unhappy VW Bug owner posting and soon he'll be followed by a string of sosockpuppets arguing over the mileage difference between the Bug and the Golf. Are we really ready for that?

So there will be subforums on other car makes? I'm hoping to learn more about Jaguars.

I'm not really big on Mercedes. Can I get one of these instead?

Since we're switching over to an automobile site can we please have Jeremy Clarkson as a moderator since he's presently unemployed anyway?

Due to my contractual relationship with Mercedes, you will not be allowed to talk about other car makers (especially that BMW trash). You'll have to use the official Jaguar forums, but I've heard it's all just trolls at this point. They gave up on their main forums years ago.

Speaking of, I had a friend who worked for a Jaguar dealership in Ft. Lauderdale. On their first day of training, they learned that it was never to be pronounced "JAG WAHR", but is in fact "JAHG OO ARE".

Is it my imagination, or are more and more German cars -- BMW and M-B particularly -- coming to resemble Japanese cars? This M-B looks like a Mazda something-or-other.
