I bought my 2006 SLK55 AMG a year ago. I adored this car and its unique look. The handling was great, and it was a little rocket! Well, last week a woman in a truck crashed into me head on! She didn't see me and it happened so quickly that neither of us had time to brake. I estimate the combined speed to be about 75mph. Well, that little car saved my life. The entire engine compartment looked like an accordion, but due to the safety design, the engine dropped versus penetrating the cab. The car looked like a smashed tin can with an intact cab! The seatbelt and airbags deployed, and I escaped with relatively minor injuries. I am ordering my brand new SLK55 right now!
Cup holders block A/C vent, shift paddles are positioned on the back of the steering wheel in such a way that I've accidently pushed them several times. Install Mark Levinson sound systems! Better than Harman Kardon.
