MB have ordered the replacement SLK for us after the parktronic saga. They also gave us the option to add any other bits - so we went with phone pre-wire, rain sensing wipers, tyre pressure loss warning and remote roof operation. I also have the option to collect it from the factory. There is no charge for the 1st person, but an additional person will cost £350-400. I am unsure if this is worth doing - my partner is really not bothered about wandering around a car factory , I, on the other hand, think it would be fascinating The downside is how much fun is it on your own, and then a 700 mile drive home. I need to let them know on Monday if I want to go to the factory to collect. Any comments - I saw the last thread when Diesel Benz was considering this.
