Hi SLK people!

This looks like a great forum for SLK info.

I'm looking to buy an SLK R170 over the next few weeks. I'm new to SLKs but not to Mercedes. I've had a W123 280CE coupe in the past and I'm currently running a W124. Both great cars. I'm downsizing a bit now and I reckon an SLK is the right way to go.

cheers

Levi :smile:

Classic Car Buyers' Guide in September's issue

I'm looking to buy an SLK R170 over the next few weeks.
Hi Levi

As it happens, there was a Buyers' Guide to R170 SLKs in September's Classic Car magazine. That may be worth a look. (I only say that because my car was featured in the article and a couple of SLKWorld members were interviewed. Still worth a read though)

And don't forget, you can post your VIN on here and get a list of the options that were with your car when it was first made.

Good luck in your search!

Hi Levi,

Welcome from the Wirral.

When you find a possible contender, note the VIN and ask for a datacard
Vehicle Data Card - Mercedes Benz SLK Forum

It details what the car was supplied with when it first left the dealership.
The mods are pretty quick with replies too.

Good luck with your hunt.

There aren't any meets right by you at present but if you get to a meet you can talk to current and previous R170 owners face to face. You don't need an SLK to attend.
This is what's on the horizon and how a few past meets went on.

We'll probably have a Donington breakfast meet sooner or later.

Use @dbgrn link in his post for updates.

You'll welcome at any meet.

H Levi, and welcome from OLD Hampshire in the deep south of the UK!
I am also looking for an SLK having had one a few years ago.
I have found that they tend to be a bit cheaper the further north you go! I've certainly seen some nice RED ones north of the Watford Gap!!
If you can I would go for at least a 2012 on.
Also be aware that cars with 18" wheels and sports suspension can give you a VERY hard ride as I discovered in mine!
You will for sure find the SLK is great fun to own and drive, particularly when the sun shines!!
I also found that of all the sports cars, the SLK has one of the biggest boots. Certainly big enough for a weeks holiday in the UK for two people!
I'm a (sort of retired) surveyor and I can actually get all my kit in the the boot! You should also be able to get two sets of golf clubs in!!
Good luck and we look forward to seeing your new toy!!
