Get which one is faster. If you want a slow car get a diesel wagon.

If you want a fun car, get an Italian Superbike and a young girlfriend. Aprillia is my ride after a few Ducatis.

Since really your question is kind of vague, which one comes in the color you like?

If I had the cash, I'd blow it on a very very fast SL. K is for Kids

Have fun

I'm not sure i follow your question...which amg model are you comparing the slk's to? If you really want fun, get the slk 55amg...this car was actually mercedes fastest production car made, until the SLR came into the picture.

marty, not to be vague, it's all about you. I think you mean slk or AMG slk as a question. tons of questions I won't ask...but is this a 'fun' car?...car for mod's?...just to have one in later years? no matter, all MB's require pampering, patience, payment, and pocket book. an AMG can do so even more; as I have 2. you want style...or performance...or both?...& at what bugdet? happy hunting.

IMHO don't buy anything after 2002 model year. Quality went to crap. The 2000-2002 models are pretty solid. I'd also say don't go for a C class. I'm a bit biased though

JMarty, AMG is an upgrade package, not a model. It's Mercedes sport-tuned upgrade line.
If you want an SLK, you can get the AMG version if you crave speed and stiff handling, but it's gonna cost you.

Definitely not FS/Wanted/Trade section material...

BUT

asking if you should buy an AMG or SLK is VAGUE...what amg's??? there is an SLK32 AMG which is fast

NAME your price range and the goal of the car.....


AMG sedan- Everyday driver that will fly on the highway and make the owner smile when he stomps on the gas.

AMG roadster- expensive, fun, expensive. convertible

SLK's are pretty sweet, 230's are slow and fuel efficient. hard top convertible is cheap to maintain and fun in bad and sunny weather
