Noob here. We are winter residents of Yuma, Az. We went to Palm Springs last week to visit a friend and one of our activities was attending a street market. A local dealer had some cars there that I looked at and he had a cute little convertible that was priced at $6995 and had only 35K on the clock. He had taken it on trade the day before and brought it along just to see. It looked like it was probably a couple of years old and was in great condition. I figured they had mis-priced it. Turned out to be a 1999 230SLK with really only 35000 miles. Condition was immaculate. Offered $6500 and he took it. Looks like we'll have years of fun winter driving with this little thing. Glad I found the forum cause I'm sure something will need wrenching sooner or (hopefully) later.
