Hi Guys! Dave here from the Birmingham area. Bought the 350 Saturday 1st of August and might need some advice in the future so I thought I'd join here! Previous Merc was an old C Class 200 then an X Type Jag then an S type Jag. Now back to my fave!

I Live on the South East side of Birmingham U.K. but I drove to Bournemouth on the South coast to buy this SLK 350. It had FULL main dealer service history from PDI and it had balancer shaft repair 5k miles ago all MB MD. When I filled with fuel to drive home 220 miles it recored 32mpg. I was very pleasanlty surprised! Pretty good for a 15 year old with 120k.
I've spent a few hours today fettling her and started to do some detailing, there are no signs of any paintwork it all looks original, I'll spend a bit more time on her this week working my way round but she really is in fine order, nothing to be concerned about at all, just a few paint chips on the lid & front lower plastic.
