Yup i will wait 2 more years
Just got back from the Mb Dealer looking at the R172. I looked at the silver and red one and yes my Dealer did not get my money. I feel in love with the interior the layout of the dash and the seats. Overall the car looks very nice except the nose. I can,t get friendly with the front of the car. I would not buy the car new used at a good price yes i would. So i guess i will drive my R170 for a couple more years by than i should be able to get the R 172 at a good price and we will have plenty of after market parts avail. to mod the nose.
Ps my salesman told me there is plenty of interest on the new Slk but so far nobody ordered one.
