I love my SLK. It is a fun car, and a very livable car. Light and fling able, the 4 cylinder turbo has enough power, love a retractable hardtop, big enough for trips. I know some roadsters may handle a bit better at their limit, but who drives their car over 90% of its capability anyway? My SLK has been bulletproof, only scheduled maintenance, not one stop for any repairs. And with those top down and side windows up it doesn't mess up my wife's hair! Perfect!
