Hi All,

I treated myself to a new shape SLK (prefacelift) in May last year having wanted a 2 seater mercedes since 1992 when I first started to fall in love with cars when I was 12!!

4 days after buying the car and 1000 miles racked up, cruising with the top down, some old woman decided to run a red light smashed the front end in, £8k damage, and 6 weeks in the garage!!

Still love the car to bits, but there are a few problems that i am experiencing, its like the car knows I love it, but keeps teasing me with these intermittant faults!! Such as the boot leaking, but no evidence of water leaking in from the top?!! vario roof stopped working for a few weeks and decided to start again (think the cold snowy weather didnt help this) and my drivers window seems to play silly buggers with me, not always closing when I get out of the car, or the auto close function (single press) doesnt work.

All in all I love my car, it looks amazing and drives like a dream :-)

Anyway, any info any of you guys could share, please do
