Looks nice. I like the stitching and the fact that it does not have digital climate (honestly that option is more pain than it's worth). The amps and woofer in the trunk probably have to go, unless you are fond of blasting your Schlagers at max volume all over town.

:td:

Did the USA get a watered down version of the Edition 10? When I look for SLK Edition 10 pictures online, they look decent. This black one doesn't do it for me.









Honestly, I would look at other choices. It just looks like a black SLK350 with neat interior stitching to me. The "Edition" badge also looks out of place on the fender. Did the previous owner custom tint the headlights? Either the pictures are bad or the tint quality is poor. I also love that the trunk space is wasted by the "custom sound system." Look for one with AMG kit and wheels.

Here's an interesting choice about 100 miles away:

Maybe if the owner puts the AMG sideskirts back on and removes the faux fender fins, it would look good. From what I can guess, some modifications include: Kleemann front lip spoiler, LED taillights (error message), Piecha rear diffuser, stubby antenna, Piecha SLR-stlye side mirrors, and Lorinser Sideskirts. Not sure what the wheels are.

I got an edition 10 in July and I am very happy. The main cosmetic differences are the red stitching and the badge, otherwise it is just a set of options that are included by default. I would reclaim the lost trunk space, at least the sub-woofer. And the fact that you have at least 1 yr warranty because it is CPO is not bad.
Although the AMG version for 24K looks very sweet, just need to check that there are no issues with it.
Good luck with your decision!

Having spent some time in Arizona and the Mojave...I can't imagine black would be a good choice.......no offense to black car owners, but its simply a comfort issue!
