Thinking about going to look at a 230 and apologize if this has been posted, but didn't easily find anything...

I am 6'3 220 and looking for a toy/weekend car... I have seen some 1999/2000 SLK230s online.. they look really nice, but will I be able to fit in them or will I be miserable? Do I need to buy a CLK instead in order to fit in the car and not be crunched?

Any help would really be appreciated... I know I could go test one, but if there is no way, why kill the 2 hours?

Thanks

I am 6'2" and 220 lbs and fit just fine, even on longer trips it remains comfortable. My only concern would be in the event of an accident, my head is about 1/2" from the roof and roll bar area, so I don't think I would be well protected...so I just won't get in an accident:)

I am 6' 4", 215 pounds, ok maybe 218 after last Thursday, and have put 40,000 very comfortable miles on mine. More shoulder room than my Saab 9-3 and incredible leg room. I can stretch my legs fully on the driver's side. Only issue for me is the top of the gauges are barely obscured by the steering wheel - wish it tilted rather than just telescoped. Incredibly comfortable overall, 75 - 100 miles everyday summer and winter.
