Just purchased my second SLK, first was a little blue R170 320, upgraded to a R171 350. Great car, even though the wife claims it's her's....:)

Welcome from oop north.

We've currently got a little blue R170 230K. Great car even with niggles.

One niggle being the OH thinking it's her, just cos her names on the log.

Must be a common SLK niggle regardless of model. You'd think MB would sort that one!:wink:

Hi and welcome from Surrey (although I work in London...)

I've got the "little blue R170 320" but not thinking about any updates quite yet....

SWMBO thinks the passenger seat is hers, so I guess I win there. >:D
