Hi all

I hope this is the right place to post my question...
I am looking forward to buy a SLK 230. I have two options to choose from, since there is a limited number of those cars where I live.

Option 1:
S.L.K. 230 Kompressor KabrioleT Year 2000, manual transmission, has 105,000 miles on it!

Option 2:
S.L.K. 230 Kompressor Year 1997, automatic transmission , has 115,000 miles on it!

These what I can afford...I would really appreciate an advice from anyone. Since both of them have a very high milage on them. What should I expect if I buy one of these cars?Any well known problems?Many visits to Mercedes?Differences between the 1997 and 200 models in reliability??


If this not the place to post my questions, I appreciate directing me to the right place.


Thanks

:tu:Newer, less miles, and a manual transmission would be my first choice. Key is pricing between the two. Any previous damage, repainting, etc., to either? Can you verify with documentation any service work? I would assume the same procedures for buying any used car. Good luck!

I cant find any other in better situation. They are so few. I am only worried about reliability issues...Like well known problems that most of the owners of these models faced...

Thanks
