it's one of those "received wisdom" phrases that get trotted out by motoring journalists.

I don't get how someone could say the r171 55 is a hairdressers car and the r172 55 isn't.

The hairdressers car phrase is always gonna be tagged on to SLK's wether you like it or not he was just stating the overall opinion most people have of our cars get over it. I thought it was a very good unbiased review.

P.S I always say its not a hairdressers car its a footballer's wife's car Ha ha

The R171 has a more prettified curvy shape, it's shorter so looks perky and toy like. The ladies love them because they are easy to drive and park, don't look aggressive or threatening and the entire package resembles a motorised designer handbag. In white thing wedding dress or in silver think the brain-dead delete option that doesn't show the dirt.

I thought this applied to the R170s? (No offense...) I don't think the majority of R171 owners are female, or hairdressers, but I could be wrong. All I know is I get stares and compliments form guys. Oh, wait...
