    Why? The VED hardly changes for pre March 2001 cars. Six months ago, could one pick up an SLK for even £5k?

    5k for a decent respray, looking at the colour change, 1k for a ****e job, not enough to make money on

    the advert also says nothing about the spec,

    no doubt it is still a lot of car for the money, buyers market.....

    It's a bargain.

    Makes me want to go shopping for something I don't need with money I haven't got.:mad:

    SLK's are for 2 types of people, Women and Hairdressers :devil:, i'm so happy they're getting cheaper... they're becoming the price they should originally be! (you can guess from my tone that i hate those cars :p )

    The style of the old SLK is a bit 'soft' to my taste but I'd be happy with a 3.2 V6 with a 6 speed manual as my w/e sports car.

    Both of which take some of your money and give you a blowy every now and then, no bad thing. Clearly you haven't driven one, certainly not the SLK 32 :crazy:

    as someone who partex'd an SLK this weekend, the value in the august glasses guide had gone down £600 odd quid in comparison to the one in the july guide...

    erk.

    so yes, indeed such cars do appear to be getting cheaper :)

    dave

    PS. though I did get more for mine that £3650, thankfully :)

    Yeah funny that... Last time i "attempted" to drive it, i got in after 5 mins of push and shove, and the steering wheel was so close to my knees i couldn't steer it properly (i tried it at the london motorshow yesterday). So you cant blame me for not even bothering to drive it :)

    I have the same probs with alot of those type of roadsters... s2000's... Z3.. etc etc..

    Was just a humorous generalisation anyway... its like when clarkson said that all M3 drivers are tw4ts with blackberries etcetc.. :D
