New to the site. Looking to purchase a SLK 280 with manual transmission.

Was wondering if anyone could provide some comments on the differenct between the 2006 - 2007 - and 2008?

Was looking at getting a 2006 as a second car to run around in.

Thank you for your help

Welcome to the forum from London via a glorious, top-down day in Houston, TX. Number of good threads about the difference in model years - but basically on the 280 the "standard" packages varied a bit, but not much else.

When you find a car you like, grab the VIN and we'll sort out datacards to see what's what.

Thanks - Just wanted to make sure there was not any real important changes or updates from one year to the next.

Welcome from NE England. There's only been one (minor) change/facelift on the R171, and that was around MY 2008.

Welcome from L.A. I have a 2006 SLK280 and I love it. The later model years (~2008) have a facelifted front end that I personally am not a fan of. Happy to respond to any questions you have.
