Hello all, I have picked up this low mileage SLK 55 AMG yesterday. So far loving it. So smooth and powerful

Time for a bit of an update, after nearly 2 years still loving the car and it still makes me smile. Took advantage of the weather and went out for the day to the Peak District over the Cat and Fiddle pass

Is that pub now open?

I seem to think that it was closed for some time (nothing to do with Covid). We were disappointed that it was closed but drove on in the direction of Macclesfield and there was a nice little cafe on one of the (many) bends.

It’s opened as a cafe / coffee shop / distillery and shop. Apparently shut for 5 years

yep, nice cars, pretty rare as well the R172
what interior do you have and console (I like the carbon console) and do you have the P30 option big brakes?

You can chiptune them to 440-450hp and with some exhaust changes you can do some more.

Sadly not seen a supercharged one yet, I believe the turbo's from its big sister engine does not 1 on 1 fit/work a shame, would make it a real hot-rod I think.

anyhow, I also look every day in ads to SLK 55 AMG the R171 (specially the rare facelift versions) and R172 (with the bg brake set and carbon etc)

Hi not sure on the big brake option, I think it’s about 420bhp anyway so i wouldn’t bother trying to chase a few more bhp. Console is as pic below. It’s a great car and I think quite rare

Hope you registered your car at the C&F or expect a £100 fine through the post

You can see it at the front brake calipers, can you make a good picture (close up) of those? then you can see if it has the big brake option or standard.
