Hi All, I am from sunny Norfolk in the UK and sold my immaculate 2012 R172 SLK200 which had most of the options fitted to it back in March.

At the same time I placed an order for another new SLK which should have been delivered at the end of June 2015, but my order was placed on hold by MB as they decided to bring forward the MY16 build date.

As a result of the MY16 build a number of the options I had selected have been discontinued by what MB advise is due to low uptake. In addition, the June 2015 UK brochure/price list was published after the freeze date for changing/adding the options to my order, and to add insult to injury the brochure states that the interior lighting package is still standard on the SLK55 but as I subsequently found out it is now an option so my car which arrived at the dealers last week hasn't got the full interior lighting pack. The new drivers assistance package no longer has distronic plus and collision avoidance, but I did manage to get Black Ash wood added as a special at extra cost even though it is still available as an option for the USA.

So overall not very happy with MB at the moment, I have attached some pictures of the monster which is in the new colour Selenite Grey, Bengal Red, Black Ash Wood, with a few other options. My dealer has been excellent throughout and have given me the option to order another car but wont be built till October, its just MB HO UK who have not been helpful.
