SLk 200/230 from '97 - '99 -what to look for
I intend to buy an SLK 200 or 230, but I was wondering what to look for when it comes to defects.
I'm not a particular n00b when it comes to cars and I found a great inspection list in the stickies (thank you very much), but are there specific model flaws/weaknesses to be wary of?
One more thing: I'm under the impression that the SLK 200 model 2000 and up was (standard) fitted with a kompressor, but I find models from '99 advertised with kompressor (complete with 'KOMPRESSOR' on the side and red plate on the enging saying 'KOMPRESSOR' -are these posers -or was it an option?
