After many years I have made the jump and purchased a 2006 Silver 280 SLK with only 48000 miles. All I can say is that I am in love. I have always wanted a SLK, and the car is everything I had hoped for and more. Have much to learn about the operation of the car, and what service I can do myself since I have done most of my own auto repairs and service over the years except for major items. I feel the 280 may be a little more difficult, but I understand that.
Looking forward to learning from this site.
