Hi guys,

I've been a member for almost a year now, but posting mainly in the W163 and W164 forums. Yesterday I went down to the local dealer and placed an order for a 6 Speed Manual SLK 350 (Cubanite Silver with Napa Tobacco Leather). Its due to arrive late August / early September. All i've heard is good things about this car, can't wait!!!!

At the moment I have got the following options, Napa Leather, Wood Grain and Infrareed Roof Operation.

hi there bayless999,

I bought from Centenary. On balance, not bad. The salesman was good and trustworthy. I am less sure about their workshop setup. I have a BMW too, and the BMW workshop / servicing experience is streets ahead of Centenary's. I am not sure of Brisbane MB's workshop setup and performance.

Who did you buy from?

Hi again roadsta,

My M Class was bought from MB of Brisbane, it is also serviced there, have had no problems what so ever with their service department, but I was lied to by the salesman who sold us our ML 320, apparently no significant updates were coming in the next 2 years.... what happens 3 months after we buy it, the ML 350 comes out (obviously an engine upgrade is not significant in his books). So I have decided to order the SLK from Centenary this time hopefully to have a honest salesmen and also becasue it is only a 5 minute drive away from where I live.

Your SLK looks great in red, i was tempted by that red colour, but decided i wanted the tobacco interior which would look odd with red on the exterior so I have gone with the Cubanite silver.

Cheers,

B,

Good. As I say the sales experience at Centenary was positive, and the jury's out on the workshop.

I too would be fuming about the ML 320/350 thing. Have you told Brisbane MB that is why they lost the sale? (They tried to fib to me too with my SLK purchase. When I caught them out with some facts, I went straight back to Centenary. I spoke to both dealers before ordering.)

You will love this car. Took mine up to Mt Nebo early this morning - what a blast. I too live in the West.

cheers

Hi DVS SLK,

Do you have any pictures of your car, both interior and exterior? I am dying to see pictures other than little sample squares. Any pics would be highly appreciated!

Roadsta,

I did not even bother about going to enquire about the SLK at MB of Brisbane, I would never buy another car from them. When the SLK arrives I am going to get the M Class serviced at Centenary. I have relatives and friends who have bought from centanary and all they can say about it is positive things.

MT Neebo would of been great, can't wait till I get mine to do the same thing! [:D]

Cheers,
