I've just bought a 99 SLK230 after owning a Ford Focus (I know!!) and what a
difference! I separated a year ago and decided now was the time to have fun
and go and do it! What a difference. I commute 90 miles a day, so thought,
why not do it in style!
Now I know what makes car enthusiasts what they are. The smell of the
leather, the retro dials and so on. The roof going down is also a real crowd
There is a question in this... I notice there are a lot of Mercedes on here
that are really old. Do they really last this long? Mine is at 65000 miles
and I'm looking at about 25000 a year. Obviously, it will be serviced at the
recommended levels. How long do you think this car would last? I'd like to
keep it for ever but any thoughts? I suppose the real answer is 'until you
meet someone else and have kids!' but realistically?
