Registered Looking for an R172 SLK
17 Posts
Discussion Starter #1 (Edited)

I'm a long-time SLK admirer and am wanting an R172. I'm firmly set on the AMG Line 250d (I'd prefer the zing of the 300 but fuel economy and lower car tax means the 250d pips it) and have a strong idea of what I want. I'm here to learn and seek advice.

Even better would be the option - eventually - to meet up with members and see things in 'real life' - from test driving to helping with a roof mod (because reading can only get you so far).

2017+ models (maybe 2016 if specced to the limit - but it cannot have the analogue clock)
Preferably in black or white - blue and dark grey distant 3rd and 4th choices
All 8 sensors (no blank or missing buttons) - ie: air scarf and parking sensors
<25k miles

Potential deal breakers:
Dual climate control
Folding door mirrors
Start/stop button
Harmon Kardon
Parking Assist
Reverse cameras (I can lose this factory option if cameras are easy and cheap to fit)
Collision Assist

Not sure if they matter at all (so your help is appreciated)
Full Garmin rather than pre-installation
Night Package
Individual Air Guides vs a centre mesh or plastic strip between the pillars
Electric seats
Magic Sky
