I'm looking at a used SLK with low mileage and have a few questions:

1. Inside of trunk lid has matte finish in center, polished/glossy around edges, wondering if this is normal, or if it may have been painted.

2. It is about 5 years old, what problem areas / maintenance issues should I be looking at?

3. Any general advice on what to watch out for on a used SLK?


Drives great, roof works fine, interior controls seem fine, some scrapes, chips on bottom/low side of front bumper.
