    Whats a reasonable price to pay for a reasonable Slk? Im not looking for a new one but something up to an X reg.
    Plus what do I need to look out for?

    This will give you an idea of prices. 'X' Reg from about £1.5k up. Post 2000 facelift cars are better.

    Do a forum search on R170 SLK - there's plenty of info on what to look out for.

    I px mine about 25 days ago,slk 230 2002 model 90.000,full service history good condition etc just serviced with 18 SLR rims.It is still there www.carstable.co.uk/ I think the price is reasonable .I would have checked the roof,tyres,suspension there are not cheap.Otherwise all the usual checks.
    The price depends from the year ,model,automatic or manual l and of course mileage.
    I hope Ive helped a bit!:rolleyes:

    Red ones are usually the more expensive !

    Try and get a facelifted model. The rust is less of an issue and the styling slightly tidier.

    Have a good feel around the rear arches and where the front wing meets the headlights.(take a magnet)

    My Missus has owned an R170 . R171 and now an R172. They're great cars and the R170 are really bargins now, if you buy right.

    Absolutely! Especially the non-metallic fire-engine red ones. :cool:

    By the way - I got a stainless exhaust custom-made for mine with a bigger bore (cat-back system) and noted a huge improvement in fuel economy.

    Perhaps you should do a research on forums so that you can have an idea. But i have to say that 320 CLK is a beautiful car!
