Advice on purchasing the 2001 SLK320


I have never owned a Mercedes before but I have always loved them and wanted a convertible.

I'm looking at buying a 2001 SLK320 R170 for $33,900 AUD - it's only got 48,000 on the clock and seems to be in perfect condition but alot of people are concerning me with tales of massive repair/service costs etc, i've also been told they have problems with brakes/aircon/transmission in the hot Australian climate.

Any advice you guys can give would be greatly appreciated, I think i'm in love with this car.. just don't want it to turn into a costly error.
