Real quick, I tried the profile info thing again, I got "Server failed to respond in time." If you'd like, I'd gladly list the info and put it in the new member section...perhaps an admin can get it in there for me? In a few weeks however, I'll be donating to the website, I read the thread about the transition and even as a new member, the friends and information here is priceless. Just let me know what would work best and I'll be happy to do it.
Good news though. I got back from another dealership today and the picture is coming clear. I'll be taking your advice dmjonez and will be killing my Saturday tomorrow just test driving each of the cars and getting a final feel. The more I learn about this car, the more I fall in love. Decision is so hard though...280/300 has great mpg with the rest of the sexiness of an SLK, the 350 is to me a balance of both worlds in terms of mpg and power, and the AMG is just an orgasm on wheels. Can't wait to drive em...I'm still a SLK virgin by the way, haven't officially driven it yet. Very excited!
Some of the options though in this car are just amazing. The fact that they can track your car by satalite and call you if you get into an accident is just mind-blowing. Plus, he mentioned oil changes only once a year (or after so many miles, I forget the exact number). I'm in heaven.
One thing I did notice, if I get used, some of the models dont come with the navigation unit. By chance, are certain years more likely to have a nav than others, say the 07/08's because they're fairly newer (year wise)? I'd love a low mileage 06 with a nav for a great price. But then again, the 09's are sexy as well. Time will tell. Thanks for the help thus far and for anyone that can clarify my nav question. I'll post tomorrow after the test runs.
