Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Hi and welcome from OLD HAMPSHIRE in the UK!

I'm in a similar boat, looking for my second SLK! The trouble is I want a RED one, and there are not many about in my price range / area and with the right spec!
If you want a Black, grey or silver one it's no problem!!

Good luck in your quest!

I have the same color search issue. I liked my Pewter and Beige combo - so did my dealership any many car enthusiasts. I don't think I am going to find an SLK55 with this combo. Wish you much luck too on your search.

Hello all. I am a previous owner of a 2007 SLK55. I had to let my baby go (below) back in '10 and now I am searching for a used 2007 - 2011 SLK55. I will keep you posted. Any leads are alway appreciated.
Hi welcome from a fellow Long Islander. Saw a very clean 2009 slk55 on cars.com. Only 29k miles and asking $31,500. Located in Nanuet, NY. Probably about a 90 min drive for you. Sorry, couldn't figure out how to copy link from cars.com.
Good luck with your search.

Gary, yes I found this one as well, and trace previous owner to this site. Going to get the a data card on this one. I know the exhaust has been modified by 3 owner. He made a comment about oil leak on the engine in an old post (sorry JBanks15, i did post a reply there too). I probably will take a trip upstate next weekend to review it.

Thanks for your assistance. Hopefully we will be flying by each other on LIE some time.:biglaugh:
