Unhappy SOLD: R171 All Weather Cover for Sale

I am parting with my SLK for something more sensible (E Class Estate) and I am already starting to regret it. I have had such fun in that car.

I have a 'StormForce' all year round fitted cover and bag which I bought very recently. I will part with this to the first of you who will pay me €100 plus postage (I haven't a clue... so, let's say you will pay a max of €15 to Ireland/UK/Europe and a fortune elsewhere).

Bye for now, but I will be looking in at the ride of the month - mournfully.

Regards,

Steve.

Hi Jeff, I have never had a better car. My wife says I love the car more than I love her; which isn't true; I love them both the same. But, we don't really have the weather and I can't really justify keeping two cars any longer. I am in the small, but lucky category of people who have owned an SLK and I am grateful for that.

This is the cover...

I used to keep Irish Wolfhounds (as in the picture) and I need an estate, so I am trading both the SLK and CLA for an E Class so I can get some dogs again.

Here's the car...

@SLKSteve, is this cover for the R171 or the R172?
Your thread title (and photo of your car) suggests R171, but the eBay link you provided above is for the R172.
Thanks, Dave

Well spotted, Dave.

The cover is for the R171 (2005); it is partly elasticated so I would imagine that it would fit all of the models. I searched for the cover on eBay for a picture (and so you could see how much you are saving!) - I really should pay more attention.

Regards,

Steve.

Dave,

I was looking at your car and was wondering why you would need parktronic for a car that is four feet long! I was in a petrol station and an assistant came up to me and said 'that is a SMALL car'. The only other comment made was when I was stopped by the Guards (police) driving out of Limerick with the roof down. He walked round the car twice before saying ' that is a fantastic car' and sent me on my way.

I also noticed theweather in the photo and see that you desperately need an all weather car cover!

Regards,

Steve.

Steve, I've sent you an email...

Also, parktronic isn't really needed on this car, although it is nice to have, just in case you don't spot a low concrete bollard, or something. The best reason for having it is then there are no 'blank' buttons on the dash!

I hate blank buttons. You know there is something you really should have.
