I fell in love with the SLK in 1998 out in Long Beach, CA where the owner of a hotel had purchased one and he loved it and was happy to show it to me. Being a blues bassist I knew it would be years before I could afford one of the beasties, but this year I took the leap and purchased one that had been used doing 200 miles a day commuting and had accumulated 123,000 miles. I had Mercedes pull up their records on the car and it had a new transmission at about 46,000 miles and a rebuilt convertible top. My question(s) are what preventative maintenance does the readership suggest in what order? I'm not getting any lights, yet, and I'd like to prevent any from showing up. So, whad'ya think, folks? Bless y'all!
