Just purchased a 2008 Slk 280 today. The wife needed another vehicle and after several years of having more than 2 seats and 2 doors. We decided to pursue the sports car venue. Having had BMWs, Corvettes, Toyotas and odd other two seaters. We decided maybe something with a few more creature comforts and maybe not such a bone charring ride we aren't 20 anymore. I happened upon this low mileage black on black beautiful 280. Now may experience with Mercedes has been of the diesel type so this will be a whole new experience. If there is any advice for first timers. Please let know. Considering it took a minute just to figure out the top. Who would thought to check the luggage rack first. Oh yeah and no I did not fill it up with diesel. Thanks.
