Hello everyone my name is Dan, I am a Railway engineer by trade . I have never had a Convertible. The SLK's hardtop is what drew me to them. The SLK32 AMG is what I'm leaning toward. The only thing I wish they came in a manual transmission. The SLK 350 6spd may be the choice for me. But I like the R170 with the w203 front swap.
