An Amazing piece of machinery... by Jules, Auckland on 01/23/2009. Trim: 2005 Mercedes-Benz SLK SLK55 AMG, Owned 1 year.

Pros: This is the first car I have ever owned, I wanted to do it once and do it right. I'm over public transport, and this was doing it in style. I was looking at an SL350 but the canny salesman got me to look at this and I fell in love with it straight away. I have had it 7 months now and it keeps getting better. This is an amazing peice of engineering in almost every aspect. They worked on everything - enormously overpowered engine that was made to sound great, the visual aspect is cool, and the package kinda just feels "right". Its a car that anyone would be proud to own.
Cons: There's a few cheap looking plasticy bits in it, but that was in the name of saving weight so I hear...
Overall review: I have 3 friends with Porsche 911 Turbos, which are clinically fantastic, but lacking character. Compared to this car. And they have all said that. This is a drivers machine as much as any Porsche, just in a totally different approach. The noise it makes when you bury your foot into the floorboards makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end...
