UK 2005 SLK55 AMG near Glasgow Price reduction - now 10,500

https://www.slkworld.com/attachment....541632&thumb=1

(see post 10 for datacard)

Hi everyone,

Sadly for sale is my 2005 Mercedes SLK 55 AMG after I've owned it for just over a year and circa 5k miles of wonderful V8-snarling joy. Obsidian metallic black with full charcoal leather interior. Showing 137,000 miles, it has FSH from MB dealers and independent specialists. Loads of paperwork in a separate file, as well as usual manuals and books.

12 months MOT until April 2020, its just been done. The car only failed on rear tyres and four matching Continental ContiSportContact5 Y-rated tyres have been fitted for its new owner.
The car has just been serviced and checked over at the same time as the MOT, using correct AMG recommended oil. When I collected it, the garage owner made a point of commenting how clean and tidy the car was, particularly underneath. I have avoided taking it out in the rain wherever possible (not easy in the West of Scotland) and it spent the majority of the winter inside.

As the car is pre-2006, it qualifies for the lower rate of road tax.

Usual AMG spec, including:

Power steering, central locking, heated leather seats, cruise control, air conditioning, Harmon Kardon Logic 7 sound system with 6 CD player, auto Xenon headlights, parking sensors, folding mirrors.
7-speed Auto gearbox with Comfort, Sport and Manual modes.
Power convertible hard top, fully working order.
Air scarf for both seats. Mesh wind deflector included (I've never used it).

AMG 18 multispoke alloy wheels in great condition (refurbished in the last couple of years), tyres pretty much as new.

H&R coilovers fitted to the car which gives superior ride and handling (original shocks/springs are included in the sale).

The exhaust system has been improved with addition of a stainless X-pipe section and removal of the resonator box and secondary baffles, this was done June last year at the renowned stainless exhaust place in these parts, C&C exhausts at Hillington. The car sounds flippin' awesome but not too loud. Most journeys I make seem to take me through the Clyde Tunnel, for some strange reason, even if I'm supposed to be heading in the opposite direction ;-). Very refined at cruising speeds.

The gearbox flex plate was seen to before I got the car, I have the bill to show the ATF was changed at the same time and the gearbox programmed to the car by MB.

Engine map by Celtic tuning (with certificate) which claims to give 395bhp.

K&N air filters included with car.
A new heavy duty battery was fitted last year.

Two remote key fobs come with the car, but one of them is playing up (batteries only seem to last a very short while).
The car is in lovely condition overall and polishes up beautifully. As is expected from a car of this age and mileage, there are a few small scratches and stone chips. There's also a tiny ding on the leading edge of the nearside rear wheel arch.

Obviously, with 137k miles on it, it won't appeal to everyone but I think I've priced it fairly at - Price reduction - now 10,500

I genuinely don't know what else you could buy for this kind of money that is from a premium brand, convertible, so highly spec'd, hugely powerful, characterful and as much fun. And yet, it's perfectly usable as an everyday car. Even ratty old TVRs are fetching 14-15k these days.

Car is located 20 minutes west of Glasgow (and its airport, if anyone needs picked up).

Genuine reason for sale (new business needs a wee financial boost).

In no particular order

1. For sale threads are not editable by the poster. If you need a change made, please contact a moderator.
2, Thread should include price, pictures, contact info like email address. Try to not post a phone number.
3. If you have less than 15 posts, you won't be able to reply by pm as newbies won't be able to pm the seller either since they also probably have less than the required 15 posts to do so.
4. Why are threads uneditable? In case of a dispute, the seller cannot go back and say something was X when it was Y, because the seller changed it in his favor.
5. Seller, please post a reply informing us that it sold when someone buys it. Saves folks trawling for cars, only to find that they have gone. Thanks.

SLKWorld is not liable for any problems that result out of participating in Buying/Selling on this site.

I've had a few requests for extra pics of the car.
No bother, obviously, more than happy to do that.


Probably best if I put up an email address here: killmycomb at outlook dot com


Cheers!

A lovely looking car. Has it Comand, Phone, xenons? I'm only just back on the forum after locking myself out over PW issues. Glad to be back.

Morning Dave,


I've attached a couple of pictures of the head unit itself and 6-disc player in the glovebox.
I'm not sure it's what it left the factory with, to be honest, but it all seems to work. I don't think it has Comand.

There is a (clunky and woefully outdated) SatNav facility on it but I just use Maps on my phone, if I ever need to.



When I initially got the car, I had visions of getting something like a Dynavin N6 GPS DVD with Bluetooth fitted.
But I've only ever used the 55 as a weekend car for fun, roof off and quad exhausts blaring. The stereo is rarely switched on!


Cheers,
Cal
