Hi everyone, I am a new dues paying member and my Slk will not be here until next week. It is a Slk 350 2006 with just over 20,000 miles.

Capri Blue with black interior.

I do want to get some advise on buying a Slk55 that has had two owners, a 2006 with 82,000 miles on it. They want 22,000. I am concerned about the high mileage. Does anyone have an opinion about these engines and higher miles or I am I just being to cautious....The auto appears to be in great condition. I saw it on E-bay and it is in Texas.

Thank you for letting me be a part of this group, I am looking forward to showing you my photos....

Welcome.

Not too concerned about the mileage as long as it has been well taken cared of. I would recommend a thorough independent evaluation/inspection by MB before buying.

If manual transmission isn't a requirement for you, then get the SLK55, better looks inside and out, plus you can't argue with power. Pay the $200 for whatever they charged now for the PPI from a MB dealer and you should be fine. Good luck.

:)THANKS for the forum support. Depends on price and options. 2006 SLK 350 20,000 miles (+PLUS), color (+PLUS), price and what options? SLK 55 with 82,000, not high for most 2006 cars, but high for a SLK 55. Still, plenty of life left. Again, depends on color and options. Can't argue with the price.

high mileage you say? i have an 09 slk 55 with 48000 miles. bought it new.
:tu:WOW, cost per mile, v-e-r-y low.

:tu:Solid advice.
