You know one of those threads where they try to make out that they really don't care if it doesn't sell, whereas in reality they really, really want to sell it?

Unfortunately the sort of person who wants a 20 year old Mercedes SLK will pay £600 for a shit example in silver, and ignore the advice that the bill will stretch to several grand inside 18 months. Three months later when everyone has seen them in an SLK, it will urgently need 2 New tyres, they are skint from paying insurance fuel and tax on their £17k salary, cannot afford so sell it for £450. This whole hideous cycle repeats itself every few months.I wouldn't describe this as having "Rust issues"; rather it's condition is commensurate to age. It's in fair condition.

Just whack it up for a grand and take £800 for it - and be happy you got shut of it before something broke and cost you an arm and a leg!

Want, no.

 

Have to because I got a relationship, moved house, have different priorities and no time to enjoy, no space to store? Yes.

 

Just curious - have you ever jumped into a thread where you've got something nice to say about a car for sale, or talked the price up?

Youd be surprised what some pricks will pay for something they actually want. Sometimes just takes a while to find the right arse for the seat. If you have a look what yellow 1998 SLKs are priced at on ebay, youll see a variety of asking prices ranging from the ridiculous right down to the still probably overpriced. This cars target audience is always going to be narrow, especially on fucking Autoshite but I'm sure someone thats followed the thread or that knows the seller will see the value in it.

Yeah. With the roof down. Ive had one before. Bit cramped with the roof up, but livable as a second car.

It's a real shame that all the sheds out there seem to infer that a nice one is worth the same. Having joined the ranks of ancient Mercedes ownership, I know that prices vary massively and widely, Cars like mine are anywhere from £600 to £4000, both ends seem a tad extreme to me! I know everyone thought I overpaid for mine (at £1800) but apart from a few bubbles on the arches (Like the SLK) it's a really nice car and has been well looked after. Far better to get a decent one than a shed as MB prices will hurt you in short order!
