Good advice. Thank you.
If you aren't already set on an AMG, you can find good prices for a face-lifted SLK 350. The models from the first couple years had some engine issues, so I'd avoid those unless you wanted to put a lot research into the specific car you are getting to be sure it wasn't in the affected batch, or the problem was already corrected. They fixed it by the time the facelift came around.
Mercedes Benz, they are addictive, 97 E420, 98 S420, 06 S500 and an 11 S550.
