2004 SLK230 Kompressor Special Edition with low, low 36,009 miles just traded in at Sears Imports in Minnetonka! This is an extremely clean car, a perfect roadster to enjoy this season, but what’s different about this 2004 Special Edition?
2004 was the last year for this first generation SLK body style, released in 1997 and the retractable hard top convertible which started the shift, by all manufacturers, towards that feature (I mean, even the Chrysler Sebring has a retractable hard top now). They came out with this SLK Special Edition knowing it was the last hurrah for the body style.
The 17″ wheels are unique to this model so too is the rear deck spoiler and the color coded, silver, front grille. The exterior also sports ‘SLK Special Edition’ badging. The inside, to me, is what really sets this apart from normal SLKs. The interior of this car is has sport seats covered in Mercedes’ highest end Nappa Leather as well as leather wrapped roll bars. The dash is unique to this car with silver rimmed gauges, the shift knob is chrome capped, adding a high end look and feel which finishes things off nicely.
The interior of this car is so nice, it feels more like the interior of its larger, more expensive stable mate of the era, the SL500. I have never seen seats like this before in an SLK, they’re very supportive, comfortable and they look great. The seats in this car show very, very little wear, the bolsters aren’t all creased and worn out like you might see on so many BMW Z4s, Porsche Boxsters or other SLKs of this vintage. This car is tip top, inside and out.
