As mike350 says:

Looking at the picture at the top of the page, you have the yellow R170 that was made first, this then changed into the black R171 shape, finally the white R172 was built. The R172 was first called an SLK but later had a facelift (often referred to here as FL) and became the SLC.
Each build had a facelift in the later years of the model run with a few nips and tucks, but basically the same overall shape.

Well they might not have picked up the written word so well.


But they sure mastered British sarcasm >:D




Jeff just spat his drink out for once.:surprise:


Why?


Because he probably corrects my written words more than anyone elses.:frown:


Leave the 's' Jeff. It's colloquial, not colonial :D
