2012 SLK55 AMG
I really don't think it's had a hard life. The previous owner, a lady had also adorned it with a glitzy cover for the info system knob. The service history is solid and the mileage supports it. I'm gonna check the exhaust valves tomorrow and take it from there. Might get them to push it out of the showroom and start it again if the valves check out ok, and if they don't, they'll be keeping it a bit longer till it's sorted. As far as the brake calipers are concerned, you're the first person to mention the size. I'm just wondering what else someone is going to point out!I’m an absolute noob when it comes to mechanical stuff. It sure don’t sound right inside the showroom, sloppy flappy curry morning-after noises aren’t normal but surely the dealer would know to fix it if we’re misfiring on a cylinder or two.
question though: I don’t think the spec sheet says P30 and I think those callipers are bigger than standard r172 55?
I actually like the colour, but does it have aftermarket brakes? If so, then does it suggest a fair bit of track work?
even that wouldn’t put me off, but I would spend a couple of hundred quid and get a professional merc specialist mechanic to check it over. Turbo recommended one, check his posts.
good.luck, it sure is purty.
