I may have everyone beat!

My delivery was Oct. 97 (1998 model), and I still have the car. I waited for about 7 months after ordering.

140,000 miles! Dang, where are you driving to?

That is good to know that the engine can last that long...I'm only at 55K, so I've got at least another 15 years of useful life..ha ha

Cheers,
Pat

I got mine in December 1999. I was on a waiting list for 1 year and 3 months before I got it. It was hard to get a sport with a manual trans.

Purchased June 2002 - so going on 3 yrs now. No problems to complain about, engine still going strong. Plan on doing the 60k maintenance later this year. This one's a keeper folks; until they put keyless go in the next SLK [:D], with panoramic roof as an option, then I'll consider replacing my ride. Enough already with the teasing - heck it took them 8yrs to put an in-dash cd player in US SLK as standard equipment[:(!].
