    Where are you located and how did you manage to get a 7% discount? I am looking at the same car and thinking of ordering one myself. The dealers keep telling me that an order will come with no discount.
  • Hi guys,
    I just got a 2006 SLK280 with the price of $43,800 "out the door". This car is all standard. Just wondering if this is the right deal with the current market. Please let me know. Thanks!

    sounds like a good deal. what do you mean by "all standard"? what options do you have? or you got the very basic model with no add-ons? auto/ manual? Can you list the break down of the deal, ie, price before tax/fees, etc?
  • I didnt have any option with it. Manual, standard equip. Tax here is 8% so u can do that math. But out of the door was 43,800 for me. Goodluck with you deal.
  • I bought a 2005 SLK350 (new)...it took me 3 mos to order it the way i wanted it...I love it
    I wanted the SLK55, but realized that the extra $$ wasnt necessary since the next raffic light was 2 blocks away..
    NEVER pay sticker...they tried it, but it didnt work...
  • i bought mine from Euro motorcars in Bethesda...it was a good experience. They discounted the car for me (after telling me that they didnt discount the model (this was last year)....
    i ordered the Black with ASH interior...
    BE CAREFUL ABOUT THE INTERIOR COLOR SINCE THE ROOF IS REALLY AN ASH/GREY COLOR. SOME INTERIOR COLORS WILL LOOK SILLY IF IT DOESNT MATCH THE ROOF!!
  • The SLK55 may be different, but the 350 can be had with a discount....i would check dealers that have many in stock (an 05 is the same as an 06) and get it from them....
  • I'm looking for an SLK350 with the premium II, Auto trans and 6 CD changer. They are saying they reduced the MSRP to 47,916 from 49,645 and a 39 month lease is $2000 down, 850/month including tax. Seems very high!!!!! They won't give away the money rate. Can you help in anyway?!!

    Hi, does anyone have any updated money factor for the SLKs? SLK55 in particular. Thanks!

    Hi everyone,
    I just shopped around for a SLK280 and I was wondering if $45,000 or possibly $44,000 is too much for one with a MSRP of $49,505 (somewhere around there).
    Also, should a larger down payment alter the money factor at all? My initial impression is that it shouldn't since the money factor is based upon someone's credit history and therefore shouldn't be affected by annual lease mileage allowance or amount of down payment. Then I remembered BMW has a certain plan where you'd make certain additional payments throughout your lease to lower the money factor.
    Plus, does anyone have the residual and money factor for a SLK280 for 27 months and 12k miles a year?

    Thanks in advance!

    I was curious is somebody drives this in cold weather. How does it drive with snowfall and what is reasonable to drive it around. My other half thinks this cannot be used in snow at all. In additional is Porsche boxster better given that it has the engine in the middle rather than in the front but is still a RWD.

    The lease on my SLK 280 is up on 8/8/09
    As of today, I have not been given an buy-out price.
    My residual is $30,000. This was a 33 month lease and bought in Detroit through a resident offer, which is why the residual is so high.

    Does anyone have current Manheim Auction Prices and/or know what Mercedes is quoting for a lease-end purchase?

    Does anyone know what interest rate Mercedes Benz Financial is offering to buy at lease-end?

    I know I can buy another one, but the car is perfect, and I would like to keep it!

    Thanks in advance!

    Catherine

    I am assuming they will want me to keep it as they are retailing these cars in Florida for around $19,999, and there are a lot of them!
  • I just got my SLK300 with sport (and AMG wheels) and multimedia package with MSRP of $58885. I put $3000 out the door and $620/per month (pre-tax, 35 months). But then I wanted to pay for Pre-Maintenance & Wheel protection package so I ended up paying $730 (including tax for 35 months) and the $3000 down. Is this a ok deal? Please let me know. Thanks!!

    Dealers are marking down the current 2011 SLKs, because 2012 new body SLK is just around the corner. Also MBF offers additional incentives to get rid off 2011 models. In January, the only improvements in leasing/financing belongs to SLK.
    By the way, 2012 SLK is a real piece of art! You can read all the details, specifications and what's new here: 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class model changes.. Actually, it makes sense to wait until new model. It will be released in about 5 months...
  • I am about to buy a new slk350 and am trying to find out what the general experience has been with this car pro and con before i purchase vehicle on friday of this week.
    any thoughts greatly appreciated.
    thanks, Henry
  • I see discussion of the end of year 2011 SLK but none of the new designed 2012. What are people being offered? Can I expect the same 10-15% off MSRP & options that O got on my Subaru Forester?
  • A year ago MB was offering discounts and incentives to sell off the 2011 SLK because the 2012 was a redesign. I don't see any incentives or a reduction more than 8% on the 2012.

    Do they typically only do this on redesigned models? I know the 2013 won't be changed but when will that model year be offered?
  • Has anyone tried to get additional discounts on top of the MB offered 7% ED option? I'm looking at a new SLK 350 in July of 2013 and would like to get 7-8% from the dealer plus the 7% ED bump.

    I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area with several dealerships in the area...are any giving better discounts? Thanks.
  • I am looking at a 2009 SLK 300, while test driving I noticed that the High Beams would not stay on in the AUTO mode but would stay on in the Manual mode. The dealer is telling me that this is how the light is designed but I cannot find anything that confirms. My mechanic has told me that he has never ran into this issue. Can anyone confirm? My 2006 SLK 280 does not share this design feature as the high beams work in the AUTO mode

    Looking to purchase a new slk350 in Boston area. stealer here is quoting me 6% off msrp on an ordered vehicle. He tells me there is no rebate or cash back! I am used to buying american made vehicles at 500 less than invoice, so I am a bit shocked.. It's also so hard to find mercedes invoice pricing online.. Does anyone have any recent experience in buying an slk model? The vehicle I would like to order has an msrp of about $67,500.00
    Thanks!

    Has anybody purchased a 2014 SLK250 lately? I'm interested in what kind of numbers people are getting on leases.
