I saw and drove two more SLK320's today and put a deposit down on one of them. We should complete and I collect the car on Thursday evening. Needless to say one is a tad excited...

Pics and so forth when I get the car.

Anyone wanna buy a Rover? (literally) one careful owner! :grin:

Yes Jeff. Many thanks.

Awaiting the VIN for the one I bought and I'll be asking for the last one (until the NEXT SLK!!)

Thanks. Can't wait!

Honestly ... NONE! My wife won the car, brand new, in 1997 and it's been in the family ever since. My son owned it for a while to learn to drive and I've taken it on to earn some no-claims towards the SLK, so history-wise it's as clean as a whistle. But it is a Rover, so beginning to show it's age.

It's a blue, 2002, SLK320. Owner has bought an SL500 and REALLY can't justify both cars with a six mile commute. :)

Enjoy your car, mine still puts a big smile on my face.
It's funny. Neither owner today actually wanted to sell their cars. The first muttered "why am I doing this?" to himself and took his off the market after I test drove it (I had politely said no, I didn't want it) and the second had been driving it that morning and again, was reluctant to sell.

There must be something magic in these SLKs....

He probably didn't try hard enough.
His loss, my gain. :)

Only two more days.... (not counting, honest.) Sold the Rover. Insurance sorted. Just the garage to clear.

It'll be worth it! One day you'll sit in your garage looking at it and wondering what more you can do with it. Then you'll Armorall your engine...
