So I've owned my car for one year.
And it wasn't my second car, it was the _only_ one.
I don't have to commute or travel a lot and I only put around 10kmi on it.

Within last year this car brought me lots of fun and not for a minute had I any regrets about choosing SLK.

Since I bought it the car has been at the garage only twice - taillamp recall (dealer) and wheel alignment check (indy).

Below is the list of things that I've done to it within last year, most of them - at the beginning of ownership.

Originally horns were in front of the radiator, restricting the airflow a bit. Now they are undeneath the car, just behind the bottom edge of the bumper cover.

It's not a big improvement in cooling though, especially considering that stock "shaver" grill was much more restrictive than current one from w209.
