Hi, Peter, from Melbourne Victoria Australia.

I am looking at buying a 2001 SLK230 6sp Manual .

This would be my first Merc, currently own a 2003 MX5

My neighbour has been advertising one for sale outside his premises and it has had me thinking that I will get that one or one like it.

Can the forum let me know the common problems with these vehicles to look for when buying and also anything to look for in particular for the clutch/transmisson for the manual version.

Looking forward to any responses.

Cheers

Welcome from NE England (via NW England). Overall, MTs are less problematic than autos.
