Hi. Well, sadly, I must admit this SLK is not the most comfortable seat Mercedes has ever made. They look stunning, in my opinion, so thin. The thinness of the seats also help the cabin feel larger to me. I like this feeling of a larger cabin. I can live with the seats. They lean back enough for me. I simply find my back hurts after some time.
The Z4, nice car. It's a new generation, whereas the SLK new generation will arrive next summer, so the right now the Z4 has some advantages of just coming out recently.
The SLK will have the advantage that you should be able to get CRAZY discounts as in a few months it will be the old model. Keep shopping around.
I think for the long haul, Mercedes are nice to have.
You have to do what's best for you. I think you'd enjoy being in the Mercedes family and here at SLKWORLD.
However, get the car you truly prefer after research.
I'd say wait until the new SLK too, but of course, for a year or so, dealers will want so much for the brand new model, you could really be waiting a while. One nice thing about the 350 right now though is it does have 300HP. THe new model is only going to have a few HP more, although it will get better MPG with direct fuel injection, I don't mind the maturity of the proven engine.
