I bought a 2003, 56k mile SLK230 yesterday for my partner's birthday, which she loves. Driving it with her yesterday I was pleasantly surprised at what a well built, solid little thing it is. I know they have their rust issues (this one has been sorted so is good in that respect) but I'm really pleased at how much car and what a nice, open top, pootling about experience can be had for not much money. She wanted an auto and for what I paid there's nothing much to touch it. Shown with my SL, as it's big brother/sister!

Now various and sundry
Agree with those sentiments entirely- they are great little cruisers, if you can find a nice well cared for example. Mate sold one last year well sorted and garaged all its life, he sold it for £1700 . Just too small inside for us. Glad she likes it.

Loved mine and regret selling it.
