2005 SLK 350

Hey folks

Getting my first car. *I really want one of these *I'm a 24-year old professional so my goal isn't to get one and act like an idiot on the roads ie speeding to impress etc, I just really admire this model. *The seller is 2nd owner, it's done like 110k miles, she has her service records and is paying 1300 in repairs before selling. *Wants 7900. *I'll lowball around 6500-7k. *I don't 100% like the color (diamond silver - the sorta-blue variety) nor the interior (light blue leather). *However, at this price I can experience a Benz and have the style/enjoyment I'm looking for. *Now, is it gonna be costing me a fortune in repairs?? *That's me main issue. *I am looking at spending say 500 total every month on the car payments and insurance. *I really don't want to be spending more than 1k a year on repairs/service/parts. *

What say you guys?
