I went and kicked some tires

Well kids i went and kicked some tires today looking at the r171 Here is something the tickled my fancy. I love the mileage on the car the interior color i don,t care about the 2 owners no bother to me. The car looks very clean and well cared for. The interior is in excellent shape everything works. I am not so hot about the color. It is kinda pretty but i don,t feel the hell yeah sweet little ride thing. As far as the price i offered the Dealer $ 18500.00 i thought the manager would drop on me he came down to 21500 i walked since i really was not shure on the color. Since i am cheap i would like to pick the Slk up for not more than 19500. Well Kids what do you think? Here is the info on the car

and here is my 2nd choice sorry no pic yet not even from the Dealer Webside but it is the darker blue

Ok price for basic optioned slks. No comfort, trim, lighting, entertainment, heating, HK sound mentioned in add or in pics. Hard to resell later; especially the lacking heating pkg.

IMHO looks pretty bland. I would take my time and look at several similar examples.....also I read on the site that some 05 cars had significant engine issues.

I know the link I posted is for a 280, but if you want me to check it out, I'd be more than happy to do so.
