How many miles on your slk?

Leapy fish beat me to it. I was going to ask the same question 'What mileage has the car covered'?

This will give members more scope in maybe giving identification or ruling out possabilities. Have the car been regulary serviced to ensure clean auto box fluid etc?

I think the mileage answer will give you a more considered and concise answer to the question posed especially since the car is now 9 years old and may have covered anything between 20 and 200 thousand miles.

Good luck butty
