        NTA, but I see the posts like this and don't get it
        A lot of posters here are concerned about other people looking at them while they drive, and they imply not only this is a bad thing, but driving a convertible somehow makes this times worse.

      Same with a Miata. These were competitors back in the day.

      OP if you get a M112 v6 with a manual you'll be laughing all the way. Later cars came with a V8 too and they are VERY quick.

      The only negative honestly is it's frumpy styling. I'd rather be driving an SL going off of aesthetics, but I'd rather be driving a 6MT SLK230 all day long based off of actual fun.

        slk racing is cause it cannot compete against anything in its class, hate to break it to you.

        6mt slk230 is slower than a 6mt z4 3.0

      Based 90s merc enjoyer. If you can find a V6 I would suggest that, unless you really want the turbo. More HP, simpler mechanicals, less likely to have oil leaks.

      SLK is more like a Miata. My SL is more like a european muscle car.

      I can't afford or even find the V6 version ;( I'm getting the 230 Kompressor (with a K) specifically. The kompressor is gonna make it sound almost american tho.

        Won't if bolted to a cylinderlet. It whines, the noise is even worse than turbocharged I4s produce.

        Why not buy the SLK's autistic American-badged son, the Chrysler Crossfire, since you like Daimler Chrysler slop? It came with a V6.

          I do not live in america and not only would the Chrysler be twice as expensive, it would also be impossible to find parts for. It does look cool tho

            It's literally the first gen SLK with a different skin. Its engine is the same Mercedes 3.2L you can't afford in the SLK
            >it does look cool tho
            No, not even remotely. It looks like something Baz Luhrmann doodled on a wienertail napkin after his fifth martini

            Like 100% parts commonality besides the exterior? I find that a bit hard to believe but that would make things easier I suppose. Still, the 3.2l v6 is exceedingly rare here so finding parts for just that would be hard where I live, even if it was an SLK.
            >it does look cool tho
            Yeah when I said that I only saw the front. I looked at the rest of the car and I would like to retract that statement.

            yes the crossfire is 100% SLK, even the interior is just mildly changed. Dropping the hardtop vert hardware makes it a slightly better car handling wise but it doesn't look as nice as the car it's based on.

      What's shit about them? They dont seem to have the rust problems that the S class cars from around that time period do or the notoriously unreliable pneumatic suspension. The fit on the interior does seem to be pretty bad by mercedes standards tho

        They are fine cars, I looked at both the SL and SLK before getting my SL. SLKs are a little less practical, but if it's a second car then it's not a problem. The interiors are less luxurious than the SL or other Mercs, and there's not much storage space anywhere. Aside from that it will be a nice car. The retractable metal roof is pretty cool too.

          It's not, I actually just got my license and it's my first car, I hope I can manage the rear wheel drive. My bf has an Audi A3 8P tho so I'm somewhat covered if a practical car is required

            They're cute, I probably would but it's like twice as expensive as this Mercedes where I live and I'm also a bit of a Mercedes fanboy.

            be advised that you are considering purchasing a car that is even gayer than a Miata but will cost about 9 times as much to keep running

            RWD will be fine, just get some good quality tires. You will find the space to be limiting, though- there's not really any cabin storage space and the trunk is very small, especially when the roof is folded in.

            A Z4 is cool car too (as it can have a manual) but is no doubt slower than the superchaged R170 AMG and doesn't have a hardtop convertible.

    Bought a black 320 2 months ago, great car, incredible cruiser and absolutely underrated right now. You get a lot of car for not a lot of money, just dont expect miata handling. Fyi make sure the rooflining is nice and dry and there are zero wrinkles, especially if its a black car the front hydraulics cylinder likes to start leaking. You can also easily check if the hydraulic oil in the trunk is full and looks good.
