Hi, my wife has always wanted an SLK and when our 1991 Mazda RX7 convertible needed replacement last fall; I started looking for an SLK. Last October, I found and bought a mint 2000 C o pper Designo SLK230 with 43,600 miles on it and quickly had it serviced and put it in storage over the winter (far too cold and snowy here for convertibles in the winter). This spring we took it out of storage and have been driving it on weekends all spring and summer. The more that we drive it, the more we enjoy it and appreciate what a good sports car it is. I have visited this forum several times over the past few months and found accurate and very helpful information on several issues (replacement of trunk struts, improving radio reception and the CPS issue).
