After thinking about it for a while, slk230mb really serves no purpose any more. It's been my first and only screenname and I use it for just about anything online related. Back when I thought of it, I really really wanted a Mercedes-Benz SLK 230. It's easily been my handle for 7 years. Any suggestions on a replacement to use, as I can't think of anything I like.

With that big white Escalade maybe "Snow Ball", "Snow White", "Frosty" or "White Lightning"

I suggest you pick something that's not vehicle-related. Something that's been true about you for a while and will probably continue to represent you for several years to come. Maybe sports-related like a favorite team, maybe a hobby?

I became Elvis because I'm near Memphis and I love old Cadillacs. This year I became "The Dogfather" for a short time, which is still a good one and will always apply.

I was just "Pete" on all the Honda/Acura boards and I still go back to that name on a baseball forum I visit. That's a small group (< 50) and we all know each other pretty well so it's easy to keep up with the name changes. We change names all to time to end losing streaks. (We're Detroit fans and they suck.)

This is the last place I still use Elvis. With the avatars I could continue to use Elvis pictures and everyone would still know who I was. Plus, it seems like now might be a good time to make a change.

I don't know, is it even possible to change names here? Or would we have to create a new account? I guess a SuperMod should know these things.

Good suggestions, keep em coming. And Elvis, Sal can change the user name's. One of my issues is that seeing and typing slk230mb is just to natural. Maybe I'l just leave it be.

Like an avatar, it should be personal, clever, and meaningful to you. Or as many of these as you can get in.
On the Aerostar (yes we have one too) forum, I'm VanGo.

How about EscaPete, or Petelade. Or, if you're going to incorporate beer into it, just add Light after those two.

But yeah it should be something that can symbolize you. My SN is derived from me playing the PS1 game twisted metal 3 all the time about 6 years ago (Wow it's been that long?...). "Krashed" is kinda new slang for lounging or relaxed, and 989 Studios was the company that created that game. I knew everything about that game... :bighead:

SLK230 MB was created under the same ideas as yours, Krashed. I think I'll just leave it be, I've become to accustom to it.

Has anyone had a problem with the 2005 STS being able to be accidentially turned off while the car is in gear and/or driving? It happened to me yesterday, when I accidentially hit the ON/OFF switch as I was turning on the wipers.

Welcome aboard, Squirt! :welcome:

You might want to try posting your question here:

We have an entire section dedicated to the STS, and you might find some fellow owners with the same problem. You can also try our search feature which is found in the blue bar near the top of every page.

Good luck, and happy surfing.

Ok Steve, I got some time to puzzle for you:

I put the following imputs together:

Escalade
Pearl
Bayside
New York City
Queens
Steve

And I come up with the following outputs (damn, it would be a lot easier if you were a lady... hahaha -> Pearl Bay Queen):

Pimp of the Pearl Lady (Escalade -> lade -> lady)
Prinze Steve
Rising Royal(e) (escalade -> escalate -> to rise/climb)
NYDP Blues (New York Diamonds & Pearls)

:thumbsup:
