Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!
Yeah tell her what Jeff said " tell her I said so". Get rid of the dog house 1st, then put a big piece of jewelry in the glovebox along with See's candy park it in the shade or Garage to keep the chocolate from melting, diamonds don't melt. I like blaming it on Jeff 1st if you can get away with that, but it's best to have a backup plan!
Tell her that SL 500S are awesome. However a baby merc- a junior SL in effect, such as a 2.3 R170 has similar look but (touch wood) economical running costs, with the benefit of decent auto box, cruise, great air conditioning and the cool vario roof.. trade magazines used to slate the performance of the four cylinder supercharger, but I think they are pretty good performance and the R170 for me is a really pretty car. I have trained in martial arts for over 20 years so I am not girly, but despite loving the R170 and always wanting one, I do think it would be an excellent car for a lady.. basically because you have a nice driving position/the auto box and air condt... basically Mercedes pitched the car as a junior version of the SL.. which I would love but lets face it, would/could be an expensive car to own maybe. I would not be surprised if more ladies drove a R170 than men. I think its an awesome roadster. Good trunk space also.
Hope you get one. I think they are excellent. oh. check out Flemings ultimate garage - video of silver slk for sale on "you tube" and ask your wife to check it out.. its an excellent video.. Kevin
