Thinking about buying a used SL or SLK.

My wife has had a C320 for 5 or 6 years and I am thinking of getting something a bit more sporty looking. I have been looking at some used SL500, SLK280, SLK350'S. If anyone has any opinions of which models or years are good ones to look at or even which ones to stay away from I would greatly appreciate it. I have been looking at 2006-2010 because they seem to be in the price range that I can aford at this time. Thanks Casey

I have a SL and my Father has a SLK, it would depend on which style you like. I have a larger trunk and it appears the SL top takes up less room when in convertible mode and my SLis a but wider, with larger engine. It's up to your preference.

Personally, I really like the SL model line because of the grill design and the headlights give it a more muscular stance than the SLK. Of course the performance of the SL makes it at exciting car to drive as well. Love the sound of that V8. I would look at the 2010 SL550 or the 2009 SLK350. Good Luck!

Thank you.
