SLC300 Car Wow Review

Another SLC review video for any interested parties. This one is for an SLC300.

High specification model featured in the video and for once the reviewer points out that a lot of the spec shown are options!

I’ve noticed a fair few highly specified SLC300s when browsing the tinternet!

This particular vehicle KU 66 EPZ popped up at Mercedes Benz Exeter at the beginning of March, £33k with about 2500 miles on the clock. Someone did well I think - it was't there for long

Every box on the factory fit options list was ticked!

A good buy indeed! I bought my 55 from the very same dealership!

Where's your intro?

for 'vehicle'...put 'looking' in your profile

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Florida!

First please update your vehicle (Put Looking!) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information if you haven’t. This takes about 30 seconds to do.

Follow exactly to update: ‘Usercp’ at the top of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘vehicle’. Info in your garage does not update your profile.

Join the gang! Your 1st thread should be your introduction so we can welcome you properly so post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section. New Members Introduce Yourself Here - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

On a smartphone: https://www.slkworld.com/new-members-...martphone.html


If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable or to ‘edit’, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM/edit. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Wow - According to the Carwow review, this KU66 EPZ had £16k of options - So for £33k was a good buy....
Guess it must have been a MB demo car...?



Though one missing option is the "Air Guides"


For a normal buyer, getting a SLC43 with more standard equipment would give better resale value to purchase price?

Do agree with the reviewer that the cabin temp dials feel cheap in comparison to the R171, or a lot of other cars for that matter..



Would need to see it in person, but our Nissan dog mobill has carbon trim for free, that looks better than the SLC £1400 option.....?
Think My preference would be for the "Black Ash" trim:

Just a shame that most SLC 43's for sale at the moment are standard, with out many options...

You are so right about this guy. He has a condensation approach to his review. Since he apparently can’t be professional when reviewing a non Porsche car he shouldn’t be doing them.

You had to bring this up! The cover is off, the trickle charger is disconnected and the insurance goes back on this coming Monday. Where is the warm weather? I’m now losing patience. 😄

I don’t think your weather has been that different than ours. So I wish us both fair weather and many days with the top down.

funny thing is that while the reviewer is certainly snarky, the video is well shot and makes the auto -- inside and out -- look, to my eyes, as terrific as it is!
