I bought a mars red 2005 SLK 350 following my heart attack. What a joy to drive, with the 6-speed manual transmission bringing back memories of my youthful sports car days. I have owned it for a month and have not put the top up yet and I live in rainy Oregon. I just don't drive it in the rain. It is very fast and looks so elegant that it draws constant stares.
The styling is exceptional; much better looking than other cars in its class. I love the Air Scarf, a stroke of genius on the part of the MB designers. A very-visable nav screen.
