Somewhat the same here in the south SF Bay Area. I do see a few SLKs, maybe one a day if I'm out a lot ... Very few 172s ... I think I've seen maybe 1 but couldn't tell.I don't see many SLK's around here. And SLK55's are few and far between. I see another one maybe once per month. I'm sort of surprised by that because it seems like Mercedes accounts for 1 in 10 cars around here. The C Class, E Class, GL, ML, GLK, R Class, and G wagon are common as dirt in this area. Either the higher end Mercedes performance cars are made in very small numbers or people find something they like better at the price point. Probably a bit of both.
