just picked up my 2008 slk200

Picked up my Slk today, wanted one for ages, its a 2008 41k miles, silver with red seats. Smartop fitted.


Engine bay is immaculate, opened the battery box, dry as a bone, so all good.


After driving my daughters citigo, and our 4 series, the steering seems a lot heavier, perhaps thats the way they are.


I want to lubricate the roof mechanism and gummi the seals, i have seen the broomstick method for the roof, i mentioned this to the seller and he said with the smartop you can stop the roof wherever you like, is this correct?


Will post some pics when it stops raining.


Dave.

Congrats on your successful hunt.

I have ST but have never used it that way.
I think it only hold for a short time that way.

Jeff will know when he responds.
