the their conclusion was quite a surprise. They went into the test believing the S will wipe the floor with the SLK. However after several test they determined that the SLK was better in every way. Clearly straight line performance was in favor of the SLK but when it came to handling and overalll road performance the SLK was the clear winner.

So surprised were the tester they took the S in for a check up and were told that the car was out of alignment and required a brake adjustment. They drove the S again after all the adjustments and still determined that the SLK was the better car.

Maybe MB is getting its act together. Sorry RC, you may want to reconsider your S purchase.

BTW the also tested the 997 Cab and loved it.
