I am the 2nd owner of a 1999 SLK230 I purchased in 2007 with only 24,000 miles on the odometer. It now just passed the 51,000 mile mark as of 5/1/11. It is black with the dark charcoal gray interior. It has all the factory options except the power/heated seats. Besides scheduled MB maintenance, the only repairs I've had to deal with since I purchased the vehicle was tires, replace a left rear power window lift, and one right side power top hydraulic pump. I have never used my local dealer, your best bet for these is find a local MB specialist who are by far more reasonable in price than the dealer, and will remember you by name when you bring your car in for service, and I have a really good one here locally in Austin Texas. My beauty sure gets the looks, and people flat out cannot believe it when I tell them its 12 years old!

Welcome to the forum from central Kentucky. It is great to see a well cared for SLK. I can tell you are proud of your ride. You are very lucky to have an MB specialist who also is proud of your MB. Congratulations.

Welcome from London - you live in the perfect place for an SLK - there's a Black '350 currently banging around the Lake Travis area with Louisiana tags - if you see it, tell the driver to slow down! ;-)

Awesome. Great story. What a sharp looking SLK!

You know, I do NOT say this because my car is black. However, honestly, I think the R170 in particular, it keeps the car looking current and fresh being black. It just doesn't look very old as you say, and I think black does that, for some reason, more than other colors. I suppose because black never goes out of popularity.

The downside is the harder maintenance of the finish!

Welcome from Austin Tx. Who do you use in Austin? Being a new owner of an Silver 05 SLK350 w/29,875 miles I would be very interested should the need arise. Again welcome to the forum.
