Not all Slk owners are nice - unfortunately!

Was out an about with my 13 year old son a couple of hours ago (sourcing magnets for my cabin intake motor grille - which I had in my hand).

Outside Halfrauds Newport Road Cardiff and spotted a black SL(K) parked up. Closer inspection and there is a 6.3 AMG badge on the back now I'm fairly certain it didn't have the very long bonnet I'd normally associate with these cars so whether this is a 'Walt' or its just me not knowing my cars well enough?

Anyhoo I notice there is a guy avec baseball cap sat in the car. So I quietly tap the glass and gesticulate and say is it OK to look around the car. He obviously didn't hear/understand and opens the door - I repeat myself and he just throws me a dirty look and shuts the door again without speaking.

I say loudly 'well if that's your attitude I won't bother' and walk off.

Don't let it bother you. Can't change human nature.

SL(k) AMG63 I am surprised at what people will do with changing badges. There is a SL in my area that has CLK500 badge.
