:-( Keep looking Adam, the moneys burning a hole in my pocket, and getting .0000000000000034% interest in the bank. I'd rather have a smile on my face!

Isn't that quite a lot of miles? Unless i'm missing something here (like a joke / sarcasm). imo that milege is quite high and I can expect why it's so "cheap".

I mean i'm looking for a buy a 55 AMG and i'm looking for nothing over 25000km / 15500 miles on the clock.

I think that a car like the 55 AMG should be made well enough to go well over 200k miles. I've seen much lesser cars do that without any problems beyond minor niggles. So if the car is nominally in good condition and has been properly maintained it's a lot of car for little money..

Yeah, I'm hoping for a much lower mileage car for a bit more money - I've seen a couple under 20k miles in the $25k gbp range, and that's my target - I want to be the one to put the next 25k or so on it!

Also given the changes on the road tax, the "pre March 2006" cars are going to be safer to own long term than the ones after band G came about...

I thought you already had one mate?

Yeah that is a lot of miles, nothing excessive for a Benz but i have certainly never seen any SLK with that amount of miles on it.

I almost did actually but me being picky, was unhappy with a few things and the dealer refused to budge, and so did I.

More and more '07 / '08 silver and cubanite silver's (which is what i'm wanting) seem to be appearing, so i'm going to look at those over the next 2 weekends.

110k is way too much, especially for that money.

John, give me the money, I'll give you 4% until we find you a car.

I have an offset mortgage with enough capacity to swallow any savings you might have!
