    Hi All, finally took the plunge and got the wife a 2004 SLK 200K Tip, been thinking about it for a while, I really wanted the 230 but this was a bargain I couldn't turn down. It's the Special Edition model and I was wondering if anyone knows what the difference on this model is? Lets hope the weather improves for the weekend when she picks it up, wishful thinking:lol:??

    It doesn't have the electric seats, but does have some very nice alloys, at just under 8k with only 55k on the clock I thought it was a good deal, especially for a 2004 and it's from a BMW dealership. It's in great original condition, no accident damage and run great on the test drives.

    I guess that's the last of the original shape SLKs. I remember they did a "Final Edition" - can't remember a Special Edition. It had Mercedes 17" alloys and a badge and some chrome round the windows - also maybe a Nappa leather interior, can't remember. Basically it was a way of selling the last of the old shape. £8k's a good price.

    SLK350 mmmmm
    10 days ago I traded in my SLK230 (Old Shape, 2001, decent spec) and took delivery of an SLK350 (New Shape, 2004,). I drove the old one for two years and I loved it

    I'm still getting used to the new one, but I have to say that the differences are that the new shape has a more sports car feel and ride but the old one was much more comfortable, plush and wafty.

    If I was taking a long languid trip in the sunshine, riding down to the Riviera or LeMans, for instance, the old shape is beautiful choice; a comfortable ride with a luxury feel whilst retaining the excitement and fun factor of a whizzy two seater.

    You mentioned the lack of electric seats in your new one, well don't worry, my new babe has manual seats whilst the old one had electric, with the manual version you can lower the seat more than with the electric, so you get a wider range of movement manually. Electric is nice, but it's really just a toy.

    The price you paid was very good. Nice one.
