I have owned a 2001 SLK 230 for several years and immediately registered on the site after purchasing it we were the second owners of that car and even now only have just about 81,000 miles on it. I did not however introduce myself or make use of the site before. I most recently purchased a 2007 SLK 350 and now find myself wanting to get more information and making use of the site. All that being said, the reason I updated to the newer model was that the 2001 was primarily my wife's extra car and whenever I drove it being 6 foot tall found it extremely uncomfortable with my knees up against the dash. Additionally, as much as I love the beautiful black 2001 SLK, I just don't have the time to keep it clean. It's garage kept but it's a dust magnet. We purchased the 2007 in white and being a little larger in the cockpit is now comfortable for me to drive. Looking forward to using this site as a resource for the 2007 SLK. BTW; the 2001 is listed for sale in Sacramento CA. I intend to put it in the Advertising area on this site in the next few days.
