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 SoFl.
It's all about a taste and preference. I had similar dilemma back a few years. For the love of GT and supreme leisure drive nothing wrong with SL. But I would say if You are real enthusiast of sports ride, (and I mean really sport flat out corners ride, sneaky go cartish, but with top of the MBZ quality), You will be in the seat of SLK AMG. Another, also important moment of consideration: exclusivity and coming out of it value and depreciation. That's not a big secret that in today's economy a lot of upper class customers can afford themselves a nice brand new MBZ. Proof in the statistics. According MBZ, previous generation of S class was sold by around 600000 copies. And that's only S class. Ad all the others, and no wander that secondary market flooded by nice used MBZes. Unfortunately middle and low middle class ether virtually can not afford them, or as not sensible to them. So here we are at the situation of the overly mass produced tens and hundreds thousands nice, but run of the mill Benzes, and exclusivity of sales of SLK AMG,(average in any given year between 90 - 200). And from here You can expect tremendous resale value of Your SLK AMG. For the interest sake just do Your search and compare depreciation.
But at any means I did not want to influence Your choice. That's Your cake and You're gonna it it for a long time.
So the best option is: TEST DRIVE!

You have a few grammatical errors, try to edit your first post to make more sense please.

I would get the SLK 55 AMG, you won't regret it ever! We love ours!

@emirbaum,

Welcome to SLKW from Southeast Florida!

Just in case you are still having trouble deciding...

The white arrow is really nice. But if your already thinking about spending around $125k, what do you have against the GTS, the hard top? :grin:
