Post Im purchasing an SLK 230 Komp, who has advise.....

Hi everyone, I have always owened BMW's in the past but thought its time for a change. I am wanting to buy a cheapish SLK for a weekend car and keep my BMW for week days. I have been looking at 98 - 2000 R170 SLK200 & 230 kompressor's... I have heard good and bad reviews about these cars. Im not fussed by little things on the interior as Im aware its not the best qality and console may need to be repaired/re-uppolsted. But some points I am concerned about are:

* The roof mechanism
* I have heard you can have problems with the ABS brakes on the car which is very costly to repair.
* Also heard that you can have problems with the wiring in the car.

I am only 23 already have a car and just built a house, s I want a well built reliable car to use on weekends i dont want to buy something that is going to be proin to having problems...

Who has one of these models, who has had good or bad experience? I'd really appreciate your help and feedback. Either leave feedback here or emai me
