I just purchased a 2000 SLK 230 Kompressor. It runs great and the only problem is that winter is starting to arrive in upstate New York and I will probably put it in the garage as soon as they start putting salt on the roads. The car is really my wife’s, she has always loved the way they looked, and this one was in our price range. Everything seems to work well and my only concerns are the driver’s side view mirror, which looks like it lost its seal, and the MB hood badge, which seems to have lost some of its design. I figured I could get these items off of eBay and fix them this winter. This looks like a great forum and I have already gotten a lot of useful information from it.
