Not really on days where I have to carry multiple passenger i use my BMW :)

But that new E-Coupe/CLK is looking really good that I may have to replace my SLK for it. Only if the convertible is a hard-top convertible though....

Me too, I am hopping CLK go with hard-top. But if this was your only car, would you still keep it?:confused::burnout:

Two seaters feel very different to 4 seaters imo, so no I like only two seats and the sportier feel it gives. Four seaters need fixed roof imo otherwise its wobble wobble and I really really hate that. I dismissed every 4 seat convert and because of that I had to buy two cars, not sure I would have a 2 seater as my only car though.

Nope. Love it.

SLK should remain a 2-seater IMO. There are plenty od four-seat folding roof cars about, some of them are Mercs..

BTW, we also have a 7-seater for the times when we need to cabby a few bodies about...

SLK should remain two seater, I was in an SL500 the other day it felt more like a CL than an SLK. I am glad that the SLK is sporty, I think next up for me is a set of coil overs as I think the current suspension is too high.

If this was my only car, would I keep it? At my age, and with kids, no. But for many years of my young adulthood, I only drove two-seaters. And I've almost always had several cars, so ONE with two seats is perfect. The SLK isn't meant to be a family sedan, and I hope they never change it. And I think you solved you own quandary. MB makes the CLK, just for that purpose. BTW, the BMW 335 Ci is also very nice, with a hardtop and a back seat...

Nah 2 seats all the way, its a proper roadster and you don't see many of them with 4 seats.

Totally agree with Legin on the scuttle shake, a car with 4 proper seats would need to be longer so you would either have to brace it with a ladder and add weight or it would twist, thats not to say anything is wrong with 4 seat drop-top's they just tend to be more for cruising than throwing around.

Hmmm - I'm in the 'leave it as a 2 seat, hard top" camp. Would I have it as an only car? Probably not, I opted for a C Sport Coupe in the UK mainly because I could not justify having two cars.

Stateside, I've always got the parents' cars / truck to fall back on, so I'm perfectly set.

It works for me as a daily/commuter car. I also prefer the SLK as a 2-seater. It won't work as the ONLY car in the household, ergo, a minivan as the other car.

HEHE, I like that PAPA. Well I know SLK is a roadster . I was just thinking out-laoud when I suggested the Idea. but everyone just close your eyes and imagine a longer and wider SLK with a small back seat. Of course with the same exterior and interior design. I have driven the CLK , BMW and LEXUS, and they were solid and with excellent handeling. I am sure MB will properly reinforce the SLK to be as good as it is now. But for now I love my SLK and since i am single it works for me. The only dilemma i have right now is that my son is almost 18 and he is getting his driving
licence and he can't wait to drive my beloved SLK. GOD HELP ME.

I'm single and looking forward to my 55, why because it only has 2 seats among other reasons. I currently have a 4 seater but it's of no use to me so i'll be using the 55 for driving ;) and enjoying

2 seats only. With extra weight and size it wouldn't be SLK.

You need 2 cars.
