Hi all,
Just bought my first SLK.
I've never driven an automatic before so still getting used to that.
Have to say I'm loving the car. Everyone so far has been very complimentary about it. The missis wasn't sure when I told her what I'd bought but as soon as she set eyes on it she loved it. She loves driving it too. I have a special edition badge on the centre console and also on both sides of the car above the air vent. I can't find any info about a special edition. I don't know if the previous owner has added these or if it's genuinely a special edition?
It's a 62 250 cdi AMG, UK.

to my knowledge only r171 had any special editions:

r171

Welcome from Italy!
For R172 I acknowledge a 1st Edition and a Carbon Look Edition...
If yours has Magic Sky should be 1st Edition and if it has carbon interiors and leather seats with green trims a Carbon Look...
Although if does not have any of this possibly the previous owner added some stickers, this may be true also due to the refurbished black wheels and red painted calipers....

I would hazard a guess that although it "might" be an SE, I found one advertised as such in Australia with no badging. Notwithstanding Danny's (above) comments, any other make (Honda for example) SE's I've seen might have a "perk" either added or deleted but something that makes it "special", well I guess it depends on your point of view

No badges like yours on this one so it seems it's just been added by the previous owner, similar to what folks do when they add stuff (like AMG badges). Only true AMG's are 32's and 55's though. Other cars marketed by MB as AMG's just have some extra stuff (like skirts, etc) added at the factory production end.

Possibly the previous owner made it SPECIAL...
But if is special for you this is enough to make it special I guess...

Are the stickers similar to this ones?

It is not unknown for dealers to also add badges like SE.
They might add better carpets, mud flaps, pigs ears, spoiler or other bits of not too expensive trim.
All marketing aids and based on the same philosophy as MB use with the AMG trim badges on cars that are not AMG. AMG originally meant the 32, 55 & 43 models, although some argue over the 43.
By adding skirting, different bodywork, sometimes brake and suspension upgrades they created the AMG line.

Get your data card and see what is listed on the official options list from MB.
