For sale is my wife's uncle's utterly cherished Mercedes SLK 200 Kompressor in Lazulite Blue Metallic with a contrasting Cream Leather interior. the vehicle has covered a mere 43,000 miles and is backed up with the most comprehensive service history and folder of bills I've ever seen, along with two flip keys! It was last fully serviced in October 2013 and has covered less than 200 miles since. MOT runs until this October. The car is currently stored at my house and not used so the Tax has expired, but can be taxed if necessary by negotiation.
Outside the car is in wonderful condition, it really is hard to believe the car is approaching 12 years old. The alloy wheels are in very good condition with one very small blister on the front right wheel showing through, but in all honesty I'm being very picky. All panels are very straight and its clear to see that the car has had minimal drama across its 12 years. The paintwork is bright and consistent with a car that has been fastidiously cared for.
The inside is more of the same with unmarked leather trim and is very tidy indeed. You would have to look hard to find evidence that someone has actually driven it - it even has protective mats over the protective mats! Everything works 100% as expected and looks fantastic. It has a Pioneer flip front CD player which sounds very good indeed, and comes with Air Conditioning, Cruise Control, Auto gearbox (with Sport and Winter modes) and the usual electric everything.
The car drives very well indeed, and has been serviced every year on the button. The Firestone tyres are very good (and a matching set) and the spare wheel is original. The roof folds perfectly and quietly, and is an absolute joy to drive while retracted.
Also included in the sale is a private number plate (J14 SLK) which has been on the car since almost new (with one owner since 2002). Its clear that it has been an enthusiasts car and by my reckoning is probably one of the best around, which is why I'd like it to go to another SLK fan who will really appreciate it. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
My number is (07941) 404852 should you have any questions or would like to view. I am based near Maidstone, Kent. I would consider any sensible offer, but bear in mind I know the car's value and very good examples are now becoming hard to come by. I have also had the number plate valued at £500.
