    SLK 230K vs Ferrari 308

    Just to add, SLK is my everyday car and I do only 8k per year. However if I go for the Ferrari it will be used for 2k a year with me using a scooter to commute into the big smog (london). So the Ferrari will be weekends only.

    11th hour.. Buying an SLK (ADVICE PLEASE)

    I bought that very car after much haggling! It is 44k and it all checks out with MOT slips etc. Infact it was serviced by MB in March 05 (41,000) the guy has only done 3,500 miles since then. He was a 8k a year man (working from home - so no big comutes).

    11th hour.. Buying an SLK (ADVICE PLEASE)

    How much did you pay for yours? I haven't seen a W REG SLK that's not a facelift, it must be the very end of production. Does the AMG bodying and WHEELS make this worth more / less or around the same as a facelift W REG - ALL OTHER THINGS EQUAL??

    SLK - buying advice

    I missed the mileage and service thing. It had FMBSH until 52,000 miles. Then it went 26 months without a service and only has 62,000 and was serviced by a specialist. This car sounds like it has been clocked to me... others thoughts?
