Hi, I live in Tulsa, OK, and purchased my 1998 SLK 230 from the local Benz dealer in 2000. It was fresh off a lease with 15k. She turned 100k yesterday. Bahama blue, not much more to add than that! I've used this forum over the years to fix minor things. I've had problems with the hydraulic pumps for the roof the past couple of years, but overall, besides the darned peeling paint, the car runs great. I take it to a little independent shop here in town. She is my "baby," and I don't know how I will ever get myself to sell her, I've never been so emotionally attached to a car.
