Cool Bright yellow beauty!

In Edinburgh, SLKs are two a penny for example I have seen 6 today alone.
Although I don't normally post them, I feel I had to post that I spied a bright yellow R172 in East Edinburgh heading towards the city centre at about 10:15 today (20th September). I think it was a 172, but it was a bit in front of me with intervening vehicles, but whatever it was it would have made a worthy entrant to the ROTM competition!

I like yellow, but I would be surprised if it was a 172 as I have not seen any in my massive search for a red one, only 170's!
There is actually a very nice yellow 170 for sale at the moment, but it's a bit overprices, albeit it has low miles.
A lady driver near me also has a yellow 170 that she has had for many years despite being a VERY wealthy women!
Has anyone seen a yellow 171/172?

I'm going to miss my yellow 170.. :-/
I've seen one yellow 171 AMG in the flesh. Stunning.

I'd have been happier with a silver 171, but the black/grey interior 2006 SLK280 I bought on Monday was the right price, with the equipment I was looking for, and reasonable mileage/condition.

a compromise!
Hope all goes well with your new toy - I'm still looking and may also have to compromise a bit! If only I had twenty grand spare!
