1999 SLK 230 now has 85,00 and looking good. Only problem has always been the engineering and design of the hardtop assembly. O rings in lif cylinders are not compatible with MB hydraulic fluid so they leak. After changing two at different times we changed to a nitrile o ring and no problems for past 6 years. Performance is fantastic. As instructed, you must use top grade fuel with no or little additive like gasohol. Handles on small narrow roads and curves better than my first sports car, an Austin Healey 100. At 85K we are still getting 30MPG on the open road. The Kompressor is like a fine race horse. you need to let it go open once in awhile and the open road of Texas with 85 plus speed limit is the home for blowing out the cobwebs. I love this ride!!
