Same here, black and black. I love it mainly because the SLK55 IMHO is an agressive car which shouts "don't mess with me" and black with black accentuates that even more. Stealthy is probably the right word.

I've got the basic black (non-metallic) and black interior. Really love the combination. Just be forewarned, though. It's a full-time job trying to keep it looking nice. I wash my car at least once a week and use the California Duster every day. Other than that, no complaints.

That's the only reason I didn't get black, I'm lazy and don't want to wash it every week. Iridium silver does a great job covering the dust, I find myself washing it every third week unless it rains, speaking of a wash and rain. I washed my car yesterday and it looks like it's going to be raining soon.. :mad:

Hey Ynot - You jinxed yourself. Happens every time! Of course, up here in the Pacific Northwest, we get rain just about every other day, so it doesn't matter when you wash your car.

yeah, I guess I did, I found out that weather.com and the local weather forecast is only accurate 'at the moment.' That's twice in two weeks, they made a mistake. Last week, when I checked the weather it said it'll be 80 degrees and sunny the next day and sure enough, it rained all day. Same with today, the forecast was suppose to be partially cloudy, 65 degrees and right now it's raining and has been since two hours ago. Oh well, guess I'll wash it again next week.

Nooo.. your AMG body kit looks a lot better IMO, no need for a body kit, AMG is the best one. :)

Ynot, Didn't you know that weather forecasters use a big wheel, kind of like the
T V show Wheel of Fortune to forcast the weather. At least it seems that way in Chicago. Spin the wheel and whatever comes up is the forecast for tomorrow.

Mine is black&black, too. No AMG kit, but I like it that way.

I spent this year's vacation in florida. If I'd live there, I'd go for *white*. Great colour, but only in areas with plenty of bright sun. In Germany the sun always shines just on TV... ;)

Thanks for your opinions everybody.

Oh, and about the weather, i used to check weather.com before going abroad but never found them reliable. Now i always use the bbc weather forecast and find it to be a lot more accurate.

Black and black looks OK but a contrast in the interior exterior colour makes for a much more stunning look, particularly with the roof down. Black interior also made me feel a bit cramped... going with black exterior and grey interior is something i'm very pleased with.

Black and grey sounds very interesting.

Black and red (or silver and red) is one of my favourites as well. But it will turn your slk in to a pimp's car. At least in Germany ... :D

Black/Black

I have an SLK55 Black metalic w/ black interior.

The only problem I have is that with the 30 package the black carbon fiber on the interior doesn't show up all that well.

Other than that I love the car. (installed chrome behind the door handles and chrome wings up front which realy set everything off.)

IMHO I always think black interior makes a small car feel smaller, especially with a dark body colour. The last car I had was a dark blue Jaguar with an ivory leather interior and it felt like there was enough room to play football inside.
