After selling my 208 55 last year and regretting it I'm looking to get back in a Merc. The original plan was that I'd buy another 208 coupe and keep the MGF I've got as I want a convertible. After working out the sums it'll cost me around £1600 to keep both a 55 and F insured and taxed and that's without any maintenance costs or around £1000 if I just had the 55. Because of this I've decided it would be better to combine the 2 and buy a Merc convertible. There seem to be a lot more 209 than 208 55 convertibles, so I've decided to spend a bit more on a 209. I thought I'd decided but then I saw a SLK32 for sale and now I don't know which to go for! Reasons for 209 over SLK32: V8 Looks better Better image Less complicated engine Any other positives or negatives for each or does anyone have an opinion on which way to go? Won't be able to buy until August so lots of time to decide!
