I am about 6'-1" tall and weigh about 175 and I just about max out in the cockpit of my 170. I admit I like a "straight arm", "relaxed" (seat back angled to within 1/2 inch of rear bulkhead) driving style. I guess when the Germans said "kurzfristig", they meant it.

"BarrySLK280"... So, its a minivan to you,, and it goes faster than ours. Your a luck man.

I'm 6'2" and 185lbs and this car is perfect for me, I even have the seat a bit forward and that I could not do in ANY other 2 seater.

I'm 6'3" 215 lbs, I have gotten used to a more upright seat back ... even in my e430 I've had to readjust the seat position memory for a more upright position. I give up a little leg room for a slight angle in the seat back. I find myself twiddling with seat height and seat angle occasionally ... like just after a big meal :)

I am the same size as the OP, 6'1" and vary between about 175 to 178 pounds on the bathroom scale.

I fit in the cockpit of my 140 that has 150 seats just fine. I also fit into my R170 surprisingly well. The only thing I don't like about my fit in the SLK is that I can't lay the seat back as far as I like. I had a 300E and I laid the seat WAY back.

That said, the biggest surprise I've had from my SLK was a few weeks ago when I had to make a 250 mile one way trip. I bought the car for my 21 mile trip to work every day over hilly, winding, lightly traveled road. The surprise I had was how comfortable and non fatiguing the little car turned out to be on the trip.

Hope this helps,
Larry

With SLKs being so popular in America then most people should fit into them.....
Not Nice.....and such a generalization! Are you saying that a lot of Basketball players drive SLK's?
