About to Purchase - Good deal?

I'm considering purchasing (private sale) single owner with the following stats for $19k. - VIN: WDBWK54F36F076185

- 2006 Mercedes Benz SLK 280
- AMG Sports Package.
- Automatic Transmission. Leather seats.
- Diamond silver.
- One non-smoker owner.
- 62,700 miles.
- All scheduled maintenance at Mercedes Benz dealer.
- No Accidents

Can someone verify if this is a good deal...I'm new to Mercedes and the SLK as I have an Audi TT 2009 and this would a good match for my wife...

You need to use something like carmax.com and check pricing on comp cars, check years and miles to compare. Plus for one owner and plus that it has all service records. What is the over all condition these are plus or minus. If car was used as a normal car 6 years old 62.7 is about normal but could be high for weekend and sunny day driver only.

Attached is what is call Datacard which list the options that was on the car when it was built at the factory.

Welcome to the World’s Premier Mercedes-Benz SLK Community from Valrico, Florida!

Please update your location/vehicle (model and year)(put looking!) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’. And it only takes about 30 seconds to do!

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:

If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member or guest will address your question.
If you wish to PM (Private Message) someone, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
New members and guests should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.
