Well I am new around here.

I am a few months away from buying a newer car. The 97-04 SLK (I don't like the new bodystyle) has caught my eye. I am 6'3, is there any SLK owners around my height that can drive comfortably?

I am 6'3 and have had the car for the better part of three years. You will be surprised how much headroom you will have.

6'4"
No problems other than my leg rests against the door speaker. It blocks some of the sound until I remember to move it.

I'm 6'2" plus and long in the body ... it has taken me quite a bit of adjustment to get comfortable, but once I got the seat "dialed in" the fit is quite adequate. I'd love another inch of height in the cabin - but not at the expense of the stylistic compromises that would have to be made.

This is my $0.02.

I'm about 6'2 and I always felt that if I was just
one inch taller I could not drive the SLK comfortably
because the frame around windscreen was right on
my line of sight.

I found this to be more of a problem in the SLK320 than
the SLK230 due to the electrically adjustable seats
being slightly higher.
