Just my opinion, but the new SLK sucks. I would never be able to drive something that looks like that. And we blame only BMW with the Bangle effect!

Looks good, but still looks like a girls car.

Did you guys see the chrysler crossfire? It is essentially the last generation merc. SLK. Same engine, trans, and interior layout. But has a totally different body.

The new SLK is an all new design. I saw it at Sepang at the Mclaren stall . Theyve tried to make it look like the SLR and the safety car is also the new SLK. The new SLK looks a bit wierd compare it wit hthe old one and i'll go for the old looks anyday . Here is a picture I clicked of it at the Mclaren Stall at Sepang cicuit




Cheers
