i wished it was new..

i am still looking for a good deal, but hope to finish the hunt this weekend..

my 2 options right now are

a 2006 280.. 55k miles.. base model.. for $19k.. dark blue

VIN is WDBWK54F46F102812

and a 2007 280.. 70k miles.. loaded with nav, HK sound, power everything etc. for $24k.. black on black

VIN is WDBWK54F67F147106

...

i am taking them to my mechanic tomorrow for a check..

the 2006 felt a little sluggish while driving but still good for me, and it seems that it didnt pass smog at one point from the history.. but it would be good for my first SLK it seems.. to get the feel.. it comes with 3 months warranty from the dealer.. when i check carfax on it it talks about some voluntary emission recall.. i wonder whats that about..

the 2007 looks great, felt good when driving, comes with 0 warranty.. a crack underneath the front bumper.. am wary of the milage..

both dont feel like good deals to me, i would like to spend less on a better car.. but i am taking them to my mechanic tomorrow, and see what he says.. my biggest worry is that the car will start breaking down on me, i been driving a mustang for the last 7 years, and i really dont know what a broken down car is, taking them to shops etc..

so i am tired of worrying and thinking about pro and cons.. hope to finalize a deal this weekend and just go from there.. :)

if you guys have any tips, thoughts on those cars.. pls, i would appreciate it!

thank you
