Hi all,
Thanks for letting me on this site.
I own a 2005 black SLK350. Purchased it right off the showroom floor. Almost 10 years later and I still only have 15,000 miles on it. Been thinking of getting a 2015 model and trading in mine. They tell me I'd be lucky to get $20,000 on a trade in but it is in such great shape I can't believe it. I'm sure they would sell it in a day if it was on their lot.

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.

They probably offered you such a low trade-in value because of the high mileage :D :D - I picked mine up from the factory in Bremen, and it's only got 14,000 miles on it!!!

Greetings from Tennessee !

The Dealers aren't the place to go if you want the best price, that's for sure. Glad to see that you've taken good care of your SLK. Feel free to read up on the 172 here. Plenty of folks who love them.

Welcome to the Forum
