I am looking for my first SLK 230 and joining a SLK Forum seems like a logical step in my search for a car. I am specifically looking for a 2000-2004 R170 . . . I like the in-line 4 and the Kompressor (of course!). There was one here in Eureka a few months back but it had issues. I hope to find one in the Bay Area or Sacramento and not have to travel to LA. I would rather not get a salvage title vehicle if I can help it, and would prefer a one-owner with 50-75 K that has been garaged and well kept. It will be my second (summer) car, garaged and looked after. I plan on keeping it for a long time (10-20 years) so I want to start with "good stock". Any advice on what to look for as the buyer would be appreciated and any links to a quality car would be grand! I would like to avoid red, if possible, but who knows? I do like the '99 in Sacramento, it is a beautiful car, just wish it were a '00. What do you guys think, am I being too picky about the differences between the 98-99 and the "facelift" of 2000 . . . 2 extra gallons of gas is nice . . . and winking mirrors are a nice touch. I am checking CL every other day or so . . . and I will be checking in here. My family is in Boise, ID so I am looking forward to the 650 miles (one way) in the Kompressor. The shortcut through Oregon will be a real delight.

Glad to be here . . . imagine some of you may be making a run up the 101 this summer, let me know and perhaps we can meet for coffee in Old Town?

Thanks

D.

Welcome....beautiful area you come from. I have a spread sheet you could use to track and evaluate the cars you are looking at on the web. Drop me an email ([email protected]) if you like.

Highly recommend cars.com (it has good filters for distance and what you want) and autotrader is ok. Avoid Autonation imho. What is CL?

OK, OK, OK . . Not a "New" Member, but it has been Years . . .

Mea Culpa, I have a 2000 Designo Orange with almost 110,000 and 7 wonderful years, 2nd owner. I have a "cottage industry" small business manufacturing my inventions on the net, so I can spend a fair amount of time on the net and then have not the gumption for more, so I have been dodging the forum. I will be more attentive in the future, not that I have much in real SLK knowledge, I just clunk along on the bits and pieces I find here. But glad to be back and will toss my 2 cents in every now and again. I do like the new weekly update feature coming to my inbox. Very nice.
