My SLK55 is my first Mercedes-Benz. It is by far the best vehicle I have ever owned. I paid $1,000 over MSRP for it. There was an eight week wait for car. I would definately do it again. Its fuel Economy is great for a 355 hp V-8, EPA 16 / 22. On my last tank I averaged 22.8 mpg. The car is solid, yet rides great for a sports car. I really like the AMG improvements over the 350. It turns this car into a monster (with monster looks).
This car is blistering fast, with an exhaust note that makes other cars green with envy. Nothing beats the looks I get while I'm on the road.
Add parktronic as a option, relocate the cup holders, and move the cruise control stalk away from the turn signal arm.
