    I think the SLK looks absolutely stunning in yellow with AMG Styling and am now driving a 98 230K Auto which I love. As I haven't seen the facelifted version (made from about 2000) of the old shape SLK or a 320 in yellow (or with AMG Styling) I was wondering if they were ever made in this colour and with AMG Styling. I haven't seen the new shape (2004 on) in yellow either. Is it made in yellow? Thanks in advance.

    Thanks, Pammy. Yes, those are the ones. Does the 2nd car have an AMG Body Kit on it? Was this facelifted model SLK imported into the UK in yellow? I've not seen one for sale anywhere. If not my 2nd choice would be a white one which I have seen for sale, although I haven't noticed or seen one with AMG styling. Was there a facelifted SLK 170 made with AMG styling?

    Plodd's was a pre-facelift with AMG styling.
    Yes, but the AMG styling was slightly different (more aggressive IMHO) on the facelift.

    Not as a factory colour as far as I know, even in Designo. I have seen a "Barbie" pink one though, on SLKWorld some time ago, which the young lady owner had fallen out with and could not sell. I wonder why:crazy:?

    The R170 in flat colours - particularly Yellow and white were not popular and so are not often seen. They are a fairly unique taste. I have seen them in Yellow and it's not my cup of tea tbh. But if it is what you want then you might find one - but you will have to be very patient.

    The second pic I posted is a facelift with AMG styling - and also the engine to go with it as it's a 32.

    Here's a white one - only a rear view sadly and american.
