Just thought I would stick my head in here and say "howdy".

I've been lurking for a couple of months.

I'm in the process of buying a 2004 SLK32 AMG. (silver)

Wasn't really looking for the AMG (was looking for a SLK320), but that was all that was nearby and the price was right...R)

I am having it delivered to my "local" Carmax, and hopefully it will be there within the week.

However, I'm not 110% sure that I want to buy it. It has somewhat high miles on it (63k).

Also, I'm not sure that I will fit comfortably in it. I sat in a SLK320 and I fit... barely. This was like 6 months ago and I was looking at several different cars at that time, so my memory of it is a bit hazy at best... At any rate, the AMG seats look significantly different (bigger) and not sure if the seats will help or make it worse for me. My problem isn't legroom, I'm only 5'10"; at 305lbs my problem is hip/stomach room. :mad:

I guess I will find out in about a week.

I am hoping that the AMG seats will be the most comfortable seat ever, but I have some doubts...:confused:

I have a couple of interesting mods that I am considering if I do get the car.... Stuff that I have NOT seen anyone else do to an SLK :eek:.
I'll post them in the appropriate forum, I am curious on the feedback.

Thank you for reading!

Welcome and if you don't get the car, go ahead and tell us what you would have done for mods. We just may try them ourselves.:biglaugh:

I had an r170 320 and an r171 55, and the seats in the 320 were the more spacious and better suited for a larger frame. Never sat in a 32, but I'd suspect it has pretty nice seats.

Hi and welcome from across the pond.
65k is not a lot of miles especially in the US as most of that is surely freeway driving.

welcome

If it helps any, I am 6'3 about 250lb and I seem to fit easily in the same model car. The seat base does seem bottomed out though. Good luck!
