I think he is just disappointed that MB didn't improve the new SLK55 as much as he would like it to.
Right on Monster!
The previous SLK 55 BS wasn't a success for Mercedes, so I doubt they are going to repeat it again. I wouldn't complain at all if I have the SLK55, it is a small car with a big engine and massive horsepower, plus it sounds absolutely fantastic.
Z4 is not my cup of tea too - drive wise.
But the SLK is really a PIG... too heavy and it's really no fun to drive at all.
I'm not a biased BMW fan at all. I only like half of the BMW models - 3, 5, 6, X1, X5, Z4 and I can't stand the others... just saying... do not think that I hate the SLK just because it's not a Bimmer.
There’s no BMW Z4 M (yet) and the most powerful Porsche Boxster has just 316bhp, so the SLK AMG is more a rival to a folding hard-top equipped M3 than anything else. The BMW boasts similar power (414bhp) but is lacking in torque (295lb ft) and mpg (22.2). With four seats it’s less of a compromise, though, and better to drive than the SLK.

This car might look better in the metal than in photos. -but looking at it and actually owning (or driving it) it is two different experiences.
It`s got to be a blast with all the attention your going to get from this car while driving it.
So you buy a car to attract attention ? hmm
Don't tell us that attention wasn't a reason when you were buying ur Gallardo..
It really isn't It attracts attention because there are only few LPs in here but I really only care about how people see me as a person nothing else.
I like my car more than anybody else that's the only thing that matters to me I drive my 97' Punto too and it has even more sentimental value to me than the Lambo and I love how nobody is looking at me thinking "******' rich boy..."
I find it difficult to understand WHY on earth there are no new pics of this car?? The two silly promotional videos and the white car with these pics and that is all MB is using to promote this car sales...? what the heck...???
I challenge anybody to find a new video and new pics of the new SLK55 AMG online----nothing nothing at all. Something is wrong here.... is this how you promote sales? one set of pics of the same old black and white wheels SLK55 AMG with two videos: One where you hear the motor while the other video a guy runs to his SLK55 AMG and the other with a guy coming out of the office to drive his SLK55...
The reviewers thus far have not posted pics of the cars they tested...WHY?? weird....
Do a search for Porsches and Audis....now that is clever marketing and good used of the INTERNT. Take a hint MB
Someone really need to relax a lil bit

Well here it is - not many people actually care about SLK hence no point for mercedes to really promote it in any way. That simple

C&D says this car is amazing and worth every penny. This contradicts everything else we've read!
2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG
The front end just ruins this car. I hope the SL doesn't suffer with a pig snout like this.
I actually think it's the opposite. The rear end is blah while the front end has some character.
A couple of recent snap shots from an AMG event in Germany.
The little SLK came across as an incredible package in the flesh. Shame we didn't get to drive it.
