I am curious as to the price of a basic (no real extras) of an SLK55 where you live. The car has just been offered inThailand and I am guessing that the price will be about $200,000 US.

I think that we in Thailand pay more for our MBs than anyone else in the world.

If I had purchased my SL55AMG in Thailand it would have cost me about $479,000 US. Or about $350,000 more than the US price.

:tu: New & used, two distinct options. As I say, NEW is BEST. Factory ordered is what I'd prefer. However, there are some wonderful deals on slightly used SLKs. Here's a used 2006 SLK 55, with all the options I'd want (Xenons, AirScarf, Nav, and a few others) with 4700 miles for under $57,000, "Buy it Now". Tempting, very tempting. I would consider a deal like this with the option of verifying the condition and options stated in person prior to full payment. There's a horror story thread over at BenzWorld where someone purchased a used SLK (sight unseen) and had it shipped. It was missing one or two stated options, and had some accident repair. The buyer is suing for a refund.

Mine was $82000 Canadian, + taxes. Not sure how the options work out - some things on Can. models are optional in other markets, I paid extra for xenons and airscarf. Items which are now standard equipment for 2007...go figure!
