My wifes 98 230 SLK is almost 6 years old.Nothing wrong with it and its been a reliable car but she fancies an SL 500.Used,toward the end of the year.
I am rather disturbed by the posts on MB's (Un)reliability and although my broker thinks he can get us one for around $75000 (trade) I'm not so sure its such a good idea.Perhaps a Lexus 430 coupe would be a better choice?
Their service and reliability was enjoyed by us for 6 years prior to the MB.

taking orders for 2004

I stopped by a local dealer today to start planning a transition
when my SLK lease expires on 01-mar. This dealer does not
appear to have a waiting list for the 2004 SL. He says I could
easily get the 2004 with the 7 speed transmission by the
end of February. They did not have complete details, but,
I got the impression that prices would not change much. I am
wondering if the 7 speed transmission will have an impact
on the gas guzzler tax.
