I can't help it - I'm weak.... deposit left
well after all the umming and ahhing I decided to let myself be fleeced and have put a deposit on a mystic blue SLK55... actually that's not entirely fair. I was convinced that the price being asked was too high (and yes it probably was) but then I tried to get the dealer to sweeten the deal a little....
Me - "I know you're not going to drop the price any further but could you get an x-pipe put on included in that price?"
Dealer - "errrr.... well it's already got an x-pipe"
Me - "oh, well that's good"
Dealer - "yes, and headers, oh & Bilsteins too"
Me - "hmmmm sounding even better, it's got the Quiafe diff too if I remember correctly?"
Dealer - "yes, it has been quite well set-up...."
buggerit I'll have to buy the damn thing now - this money is burning a hole!
well this really has perked my little ears up at this point, I was considering an x-pipe anyway so that's £300ish I don't have to spend. IIRC headers are not a cheap item to buy/fit so that's quite cool (and something I'd not have done myself) and then the (spare) standard manifolds and standard suspension is included in the price and suddenly it's not looking quite as expensive as I'd feared....
