Anyone have video reviews of the R171 SLK55? I can't find any and I'm in the market for an SLK55 of the R171 variant.
Thanks for your help.

Search for Top Gear SLK55 review.

Clarkson did a review against a Porsche Boxter by doing a silly driving through a training camp getting shot at.

Here is part one:

Not really review, but here's a video you might be interested in, especially the track battle during the last half of the video (start viewing from 13m30s onwards)! >:D


I'm sure the track battle was posted on this forum at some point in the past too, but I couldn't find it!

Youtube has tons of 55 videos, again, not so much reviews, as dynos, and drives and burnouts and against other makes

This is what I'm talking about. I can't find ant reviews. That top gear was not a review sadly.
I'm looking for a real review of the car going over all the features.

I remember seeing a few reviews of the black series a while back and there are a couple of good ones for the R172. Most are just non-review videos - a good few on the track if you look hard enough on YouTube.

V B-H a has been? Not sure about that, I've met her a couple of times and I think she's lovely!
She filmed this at lunchtime where I work a couple of years ago, I think she may have needed an underwear change afterwards....


Later on that afternoon I was doing an engine run on a Scottish Aviation Bulldog on the south side of the airfield and nearly got wiped out by a Bronco that crashed and severely injured the pilot.
I'm in the red and white plane in the background in the stills just after he impacted, maybe seventy yards away.......and nearly needed an underwear change myself.....

Great work by the Breitling pilots and fire team to save him.

Didn't mean to hijack your thread JDub, hope you'll allow me some leeway? 0:)
