    The 360 modena, i guess ill wait and see after i graduate undergard this May. Either i go on to med school, or my dad retires and passes me the bar or one of the plazas. if the later happens, i will slowly save up at a good rate and sooner or later get one. Thats all im going to say because i really dont like talking about it, at least not till i know for sure what direction my life heads after august.
    thats good, its just a car anyways and hopefully you'll get to save some of the finer things in life for when you're older.

    Im jealous. I wish I could get hooked up like that. My vote is the C32. More practical. Unless you want a small unpractical 2 seater.

    i was just told $23,000 for an SLK32 AMG with under 30,000 miles 2002 year. What do u guys think? Awesome deal. I think i will pretty much get an even trade with my R32.

    SLK32 is faster and looks better..... but the C32 has 4 doors and is more practical. It depends on what you need from the car, but you honestly cannot go wrong in any way with either car.

    I would probably get the SLK just for the pimp factor, but then get sick of the 2seat factor and crappy traction for Chicago winters and wish I would have gotten the C32. C32 is more of a sleeper anyways and with just exhaust, ECU, and supercharger pulley you are looking at mid 12's and E55 AMG territory.

    I hate you, you rich bastard.

    aww you hate me! I'm getting it only for 23K dollars, the same as a new WRX! So im actually getting a deal on this. IM NOT RICH, yet.

    anyways, spring summer time is coming up, so the slk is a good choice. but if i do get frustrated with traction, i may just trade in later on for a c32, easily. We'll see. They are nice cars, but damn, i would love the SLK55 AMG.

    btw, i have seen time slips of SLK32 AMG's running mid high 12's @ 110mph, and chip pulley and some tires, the car should be easily mid low 12's @ 113mph. Quick!

    IM GOING TO MISS..... AWD, 6SPEED MANUAL, TRUNK SPACE, BACK SEATS... hmm.

    Im also going to look around the dealership, and see if i find anything else in my liking. Im still considering the 2001-2003 M3, 2000-2001M5, 2002-2003 C32, etc.

    Yeah Get the C32 and you can EASILLY mod it to 110MPH traps. The issue with these cars is in this order.

    1. The Transmission
    2. The Supercharger.

    Both of which are known to go. The issue with teh tranny is obvious with all that torque and performance. Get a Warranty in writing, but these cars can be made VERY fast for cheap.

    SLK32AMG has the pimp Hard top right? IDK, C32 is more practicle and look so bad with 19" AMG wheels.

    The SLK has under 30,000 miles. Warranty will be pretty much ending soon though. Its a good car though, dont know what to do. The C32 has been seen running as fast as 13.1 on regular tires. They are very quick car. There are also PLENTY of M3's at the dealership used, so they are willing to get me and M3 for the same price.
