Four-door? Folks, some b****d stole our doors! Don't know like you but I'm going to my dealer and demand two more doors. Unacceptable!The same idea is carried through on the four-door coupes. The SLK coupe becomes the SLC, for instance.
I agree. It used to be the engine size in liters. Now they are messing with numbers like in the CLA. I understand that a CLA20 AMG doesn't sound as nice as CLA45 AMG but I feel that is being dishonest. Maybe they are trying to state that it is equal in power generated as a typical 4.5 liter engine? Still, I like uniformity. I'm OCD.Would be good if they fix mess with engine sizes and names changing A45 to A20 for that example.
Change the letters on a 16 year old car? I hate to disagree, but I doubt Mercedes would track down every SLK ever made and ship the owners new letters. I can see this for cars under warranty. I like SLK and this will only add more mystique to the designation "SLK". Similar to having a classic Datsun vs an older Nissan. Is the name of the forum going to change to SLC world and would you allow SLK owners?Another article states that Mercedes will begin shipping the replacement letter 'C' to all SLK owners in the 1st quarter of 2015.
