I agree with his review. I love the car. It's sound, it feels tight. Did you notice the seats are the SLK shells with a more puffy headrest?

I loved driving it on the track, and the transmission on SPORT+ is amazing, even on the track and autocross course, you can just leave it, it is really aggresive on downshifting and holding gears.

That being said, I share his lament about a stick that would make the car more involved in regular driving, where most owners will spend the time. However, that is not ever going to happen.

It's not the same shell as the SLK, it's a brand new seat structure shell.

Seeing them up close, and sitting in them for several hours, I believe they are. They felt the same, only slightly more side padding, with a light kick out, and the bottom bolsters with slightly more padding and a small kick up. I am speaking of the American spec seats.

Notice the backing in this picture I found.

The euro only sport seats, well they're nothing like anything else MB has, I suspect they are Recaro racing seats.

SLS Available US Seats in colors:




SLK Interior shot, notice the shell's silver / black:


You can see where the shell stops and the leather begins on this one, so they do extend the side with leather not the shell:
