Fifth Gear Team Test - Mercedes-Benz SLK

From 9 months ago. Let me know if it was posted before and I will delete

Notice she says at the beginning, at 19 secs, 'previous one (R171) was prettier in my book'. I knew that

But they're driving a proper gearbox. MT

But they were not impressed

Sadly I have to agree with the comments. The interior of the MB sports cars should be different than the general saloon cars, somehow it just seems to have been thrown together with left overs in an effort to cut down on costs. I think the MB interiors for most models look the same and they need a kick up the arse to get back on track IMHO.

If there is ONE tv show/programme that is negative about Mercedes-Benz, then it is the "Fifth Gear"...
Hence, I'm not surprised that they were not enthusiastic....

Its only their opinion. Before I got my SLK, I test drove the TT, Z3, Z4, R32, toyota86 or the Subaru BZR ( what the hell was I thinking). Porsche 911.
Well, I'm here. Proud owner of a SLK. Loving it.

I agree with parts and disagree with other parts, but in the end, I am happy with my R172 SLK350
