Lifelong Benz owner and thinking about an open top slk. This forum has done a great job informing me of the pitfalls of the balance shaft sprocket and oil consumption issues. Lucky to be a smart buyer thanks to you.

with any luck I’ll be posting pics of a new ride within a week!

And so it begins. My new BabyBenz (05 MB SLK350 manual) is spending its first night alongside Goliath (07 Audi S8), PapaBenz (07 MB GL320 CDI) and MamaBenz (05 E320 CDI) is sleeping outside tonight.

There’s just something about the mid-‘aughts Silver Star that I cannot get over. Ready to learn the way of the SLK.
