Just joined this AM. Had my wife's gorgeous 560SL totaled by a red light runner about six weeks ago. Wife has always wanted a yellow SLK, so we're looking. A convertible with a push button hardtop might be just the thing she needs. Don't need another car, but if we happen to stumble across one, we'll at least look. Was on the waiting list when they first came out, but ended up getting a '64 restored Beetle instead. Been a Mercedes guy for over twenty years. Do all of my own work on my cars. I'll so some searching for what I should look for and what I should maybe stay away from, but if any of you have any tips, please let me know. I think the newest yellow SLK's are about the '03 model year or somewhere around there.

Welcome from London via Louisiana! There were a *few* yellow R171's imported, but they are few and far between. They do look amazing, and I really don't like yellow cars. I've only seen one in person, was in Houston, TX of all places.
