Wish it would fit in my garage, but like the SL it's a bit too long, otherwise I'd have that like a shot - and worry about selling my 968 cab later!

Thats all the money for it. The mileage is almost 100k. I reckon he probably paid £3k for that.

I agree- if you could get it for 4ish that would be lovely and future proof- not too much to wrong with these either

I'm pretty sure I wouldn't sell a 968 cabrio to make way for a CLK but there again I don't have such first world problems only having room for one car. :)

Unfortunately advancing age and lower back problems (for both of us) are making it more and more awkward getting in and out of the 968 cab, especially as it has lovely sports seats with high bolsters. We will have to part with it in the not that distant future, which will be sad after a total (so far) of nearly 19 years of 968 ownership - but will probably look for an SLK as replacement as long as I can find one not black, not silver, and a 320 or better - with pano roof, airscarf, full leather, heated memory seats and telephone prep.

Lovely swirling there maybe allow some money for paint correction then!

Whole car will need mopping so allow a good £5-600 to have it fully detailed, but what a colour in sunlight :cool::cool::cool::cool::cool::cool:

Nice SLK, but black wheels don't suit it IMHO......

CLK is lovely, but would it suit a light / cream / beige interior? (hypothetical question obviously)

You trying to get me into trouble with SWMBO? She's bad enough if I put the foot down in the 968, she's have a canary conniption if I booted that beastie!!:D:D:D

Yes, that's close to what I'd be after, it's a poor ad though. I'd prefer a red similar to Porsche Guards Red - although the "burgundy" of the CLK almost matches my S204, which would be amusing on the driveway. First I must get back in touch with a 968uk forum member who might be interested in buying the 968 cab!
