    MB SLK 350 SPORTMOTOR, I NEED YOUR HELP !!!

    Hello family, I just bought a 2009 brand new SLK 350 SPORTMOTOR, with 305bhp Smiley, although I only payed the sign of 500€ yesterday to make the reserve !!, the discount for this car was absolutely INSANE, very big discount !!!....I will pay the car on Monday, it was going to be a little surprise for the rennteam family, but putting the price apart in this deal, which is GREAT........ I have been reading that the new slk will be launched in 2011, but a friend of mine who also works in the automotive industry, phoned me today, and said me the new slk will come in 2010, only one year from now.....so this has really made me think, anyone can confirm this??? LIKE KRESO FOR EXAMPLE????? ....

    Still I think its a great great deal, not any other mercedes official dealer here in Madrid i've gone has offered me a discount of this magnitude, so depreciation when selling it would be minor, as I am buying this car brand new from factory, I've been looking for a new car in this segment for more than 2months, and this is the better deal, best performance!!!, so this is not at all a compulsive buy, by no means !!!!

     

    Also, any rennteamers drive an SLK ???? Smiley

    I was also looking the Bmw Z4 3.0 roadster, but all second hand, but with low kms, all from bmw premium selection, but the prices where even higher than this SLK 350 brand new, with 2 year warranty, and performance figueres are exactly the same !!..

    I was thinking in a 986 Boxster S, or even 987 Boxster (non S), but still prices of this cars are high, and they are second hand, plus its too much for me for going to work and daily driving, an slk is much better in this aspect also.

    So I need an answer to know if the new slk will be launched by the end of 2010 or mid - end 2011....I need to think about this during the weekend, before its too late on Monday !!!

    If you like the car and the price works who cares about what comes next. 


    Re: MB SLK 350 SPORTMOTOR, I NEED YOUR HELP !!!

    That's a very good point, is a very nice car, blue exterior and interior is leather seats in a type of lemon colour (between grey and beige, very nice), the dashboard is all black and the steering wheel too, so its like the two tone combination option in 997's lol

    The price is probably the MAIN key of all, and also the performance..... dealer let me test-drive for a day a 2007 slk 350 (but the 272bhp engine) and I was pretty amazed by how it handles, nice engine sound, and great performance, it remind me a lot to the boxster (although the boxster is much more in every aspect, specially in the engine sound department ....but as this is going to be the FIRST CAR I am paying for myself in my 23 year life,  this is why I am a bit crazy about the new upcoming slk series, I hope it comes in 2011, although a new slk in 2011 will be clearly at least 25.000€ more for the lower engine entry,  than what I am paying here for a new one, so I think its pretty clear!!...

    I repeat myself , Kreso? anyone?, any rumours, any real launch dates for new slk generation?

    Alex,

    so far I´ve only heard about 2011 as the projected launch date. With such an attractive pricetag, I would take the current model after all. I agree with you, in terms of handling it made a surprising step forward over the predecessor and is almost on par with the 986 Boxster.

    Congratulations, so I won´t need a taxi in Madrid.


    Re: MB SLK 350 SPORTMOTOR, I NEED YOUR HELP !!!

    hehehe , dont worry I'll take you with the top down, even if it rains !!!

    Still haven't decided......yet......well the car is already reserved, and probably by the beginning of next week I will take delivery, lets hope its a sunny day !!!

    Re: MB SLK 350 SPORTMOTOR, I NEED YOUR HELP !!!

    thanks !

    manual gearbox, actually it comes pretty stock, nearly no options, other than leather seats and one or two more things which i cant even remember , that is also one of the reasons why the price is SO attractive !!!!, actually I would have never thought of owning an slk, not even a mercedes .... but now its perfect to say the common phrase ...¨ never say never ¨

    0-100kph... 5.4 sec, which is quite surprising I must say !!

    I witnessed one accelerating hard the other day and was surprised by the sound and the sheer acceleration! Enjoy it in good health!

    that's great !

    I had the chance to get a 2007 slk 350 with the 272bhp and its sound with the top down was really nice , great gearbox too, really smooth and by far not as HARD as the 997 manual gearbox or 987/Cayman ! ...

    I will post pics as soon as it gets home !!!, Can't wait !
