Hey Everyone,


Great forum! Looking to purchase a used R172 after getting my wife's blessing. Haven't had a car in many years (previous car was an 06 Lexus IS350) so pretty excited to do some research and find the car I want.


Located in New Jersey, US. My first order of business is to browse the forum and learn a few things. Not sure if the 250 or 350 will fit me.


Thanks in advance for all your help!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Welcome from Wirral, England.

Have a look if both types are on sale by you and get a test drive in both.
Even if you have to try one just outside your target years, you'll have a better idea of
each version.

Have a careful look at the options they come with.

Electric heated seats and airscarf matter in winter.
Don't ignore airscarf as a gimmic either.

Try it, you're neck will thank you for it.

Number 1 mod when you get it?
SmartTop.

Keep an eye on the for sale topic. I may be selling my loaded 2012 SLK 350 w/19,000 miles. But, I am in Texas, long haul or nice drive back. :)

Good luck in your search, and hope you have more success than I'm having!! Make sure to take a LONG test drive, and I would avoid 18" low profile tyres and also sports suspension - IMHO!!! You will for sure enjoy getting your top off in 20 seconds!
