I'm in N.E. Ohio and live on a small airport, I'm presently researching the SLK55 and somewhat the SL market for issues either have. I have had many MB cars and Porsche's in the past, all trouble free. I have now read many stories of IMS issues on both, as well as suspension problems on MB.
I only had one MB AMG, it was a C43, new in 2000. I loved all but the ride, it made every Porsche, Ferrari, and the Lamborghini Miura S I owned feel like a luxury car in ride. Even my little Birkin (Lotus 7) copy had a better ride and it was a track/ street car.
My preference is the SLK55 as to size and use as a toy type car.
Now I'm old and a poor unemployed guy. and looking for used only.
