Hi!
New member from Norway here. Just got my 2005 SLK 200K a few weeks ago, and really loves the car! It's close to perfect - just a few slight tears and wears to sort out. Will be my fun car:) - for everything else I've got the Volvo V70!

I plan to keep it as original as possible, but some minor mods will probably be done during the next months...

And if anyone wonders why it's only a 200.... Due to extremely high tax on cars (especially on horsepower and CO2) a brand new 200K costs close to 100k USD as a baseprice.... Mine costs half that...! The good thing is that the cars are normally kept very well, and retains a quite high secondhand value.

Safe drive, everyone,

regards

Stig

Welcome from London, and I'm sure you'll take some ribbing over your name! ;-) I understand your concern, last time I was in a bar in Oslo, the beer tax was quite a surprise! :)

Welcome from Odessa, Ukraine. I also have a 2005 200K, you Norwegians are funny people, specially when drunk LOL.
Had a conversation with one norwegian guy who now studies in Poland, tried to hit on bartender girl while being drunk))
