I've had my '05 SLK Launch Model for almost seven years and have loved every minute of it, except when I caught the front bumper on one of those nasty cement bumpers in a parking space. Can you say cracked fiberglass? I even drove it over the pass from eastern Washington into Coeur d'Alene, Idaho this past October in a nasty rainstorm (with snow on the side of the road), and it handled well at a reduced speed of course. At age 70, I need something a little more knee friendly and was looking for some guidelines on a selling price. Even though the Launch Model only has aesthetics to set it apart from the regular 350, I have not been able to find any pricing information on it. So thanks to Mr. Banks for sharing Barrett Jackson's recent (3/15/18) sale at $19,500 and/or comparing it price-wise to an AMG sport model. I will sorely miss this fun little car and all the driving pleasures it has afforded me.

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

No, don’t sell your SLK 350 until you join us for a drive. We meet monthly for meets, drives & lunches. Most of our members are in the same age range as you. Sell your Harley Davidson first. Send me your email & I can add you to the list. And if you do sell the SLK 350 give the new owner my email & phone # and share SLKWORLD.COM too. Looking forward to meeting you soon.

Welcome from Wirral, England.



Sounds like your stay here will be brief, but still good to know that the SLK has brought you fond memories.


Some cars make you smile.


SLKs get a smile from everyone.
