I owned my 2004 SLK 230 until this past November when I traded it in on a BMW Z4.
Although I do love the BMW, I will always have a place in my heart for the Mercedes.
I kept the SLK until it had over 147K and it was as solid and reliable on the day I traded it in as the day I purchased it.
It was and probably remains a truly outstanding car and despite my joy in driving the BMW, the Mercedes will always be remembered as a wonderful car that gave me nothing but GREAT service.
Folding hard roof at a time when few cars had such an option, solid coup like qualities from a convertable, wonderful pick-up from a supercharged that gave me about 30 miles a gallon, beautiful styling etc.
