How many miles on your SLK?

So what are your high mileage SLK numbers? I'm at 165,000 miles. I finally got out to put a good wax on her and snapped a couple pics on the way back to D.C. last night. That's part of my commute that's actually enjoyable.

Sad to say our 2001 SLK320 has only 23,545 miles on it, so we can't brag much, at this pace I'll get back to this tread in a couple of decades. LOL

I like it just the way it is. Don't want your eye poked? Don't stand so close...

I see it as scratchers revenge.
If they pass that close they will scratch the paintwork.
An eye seems a fair exchange.

Eye pokers rock!



And reception etc is better too.

I just bought a 2013 55 with 52k miles on it. It’s pretty solid mechanically and it had pretty clean service records. I dunno, so far, so good! I guess I’ll find out though!

Excellent! I'm sure I'll see that soon. I don't believe in letting cars just sit and look pretty. I love to drive. I drive back and forth to D.C. 130 miles each way once a week. It adds up. I'm the same way with my 69 Camaro. I don't want it to become a trailer queen.

I bought my SLK with 73,000 miles & is a daily driver, so 60+ miles round trip to work adds up quick.

Car looks really nice for 165,000 miles. Any major issues?

Thank you. No, no major issues other than cam magnets. I just had to replace the two exhaust ones about a month ago. The only other issue is that the navigation is failing. I replaced the laser in the trunk unit and it got very glitchy, so I think I was sent a bad laser. They're sending a new one. Of course, I just cursed myself I'm sure...
