Hello, I currently have a TVR but have always wanted an AMG Merc and I am thinking very hard about selling the TVR and buying an SLK55, but I have never seen one up close! Is there anyone in the midlands who would be happy to meet up so I can have a closer look at the 55?

Whereabouts in the Midlands are you Gavall?

I think Olly's organised a meet at Donington Park if you fancied coming along for a spot of breakfast and look at some 55s. I'll see if I can find the details

Hi Dez, I am in Stafford so about an hour from Donnington, let me know when it is and I will try and pop along.
It's 28th Oct, but it's Zenman63 (who posted above) that's organising it so You might be able to do something sooner than that if end of Oct is too far?

I live in Leicester and have a couple of friends with 55s but Coventry might be slightly quicker to get to than Leicester

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 North Hampshire :tu:

If Your looking at an R171/55 don't discount the 2008-2011 "V6" SLK 350 (305bhp) which is cheaper to run and not so much slower than the "V8" R171/55 AMG >:D

All 55 are full fat and can assure you it’s a step in the right direction from a tvr


I’ve owned both and can say I miss the 171 in some ways but in others I much prefer the 172
