Mine is also 230 with 6sp.
6sp tranny replaced 5sp after facelift (2001 and newer) and can be found on both 230 and 320.
Also first year SLKs were imported in US (1997) only automatic tranny was available.
Don't forget, that stickshift in general is not so popular in US, when I was buying my car (used) it took me quite a while to find one.
Someday I'll come up with something very clever instead of this
