Thanks!

Welcome to the World’s Premier Mercedes-Benz SLK Community from Valrico, Florida!


Please update your location/vehicle (model and year) in your profile as it helps the members answer your questions which usually are based on that information.
‘Usercp’ at the top left of page, then ‘edit your details’ on the left side, ‘additional information’ near the bottom, edit your ‘location’ and ‘vehicle’.

You might want to post an introduction in the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section, if you haven’t already.



Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:

If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
In addition, if you haven’t, please post your question in the appropriate discussion forum for a quicker response and only once. Be patient and a knowledgeable member or guest will address your question.
If you wish to PM (Private Message) someone, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
New members and guests should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last.

Just heard from my Canadian rep that the 2012 SLK55 AMG price is $79500.00 Cdn for the base.

$67,500 US Base Price
$79500.00 Cdn for the base. Ouch!! A bit of a discrepancy I'd say. :confused:
As with all CND AMG models, however, that "base model" usually includes a lot of the goodies to begin with (Save for perhaps things like the "AMG Package"). We'll see. Thank you for posting :tu:

Hello boys,

you are "lucky guys" ;)....here in Germany the base price for the 2012 SLK 55 AMG is 72.590 € :td: = 95.419,56 USD (18.02.2012)!!!!!!

What do you think about that?

Bye, Sven

Bad Boy, just wondering, how much is the tax over there for a "luxury" item such as this? In Canada is about 13% of the purchase price, in the States even half of that (varies with location). I bet tax differential alone can amplify the difference even farther.

..we dont have luxury tax as such we only pay VAT 19% on everything (except dog food which is 7% :) ).

So you are very lucky with the price over there considering the fact that the cars are manufactured in Germany and shipped to the US or CND which is also adding to the production cost of each car.

Bye,

Sven

Well in Alberta, which last I checked was still part of .canada... We only pay 5% GST. No provincial sales tax on anything!!!! No luxury tax either. We are very luxurious... I think there is a low gas mileage tax but if I remember correctly that is a federal thing.

...so, assuming the Cdn/US dollars stay near par (highly likely given the current politics and economies), there should still be an advantage to shopping down south in a year or so...

In Saturday's San Diego Tribune newspaper, there was a nice article on the 2012 SLKs. It also stated that the starting price for the SLK55 AMG will be $68,375 (US).
