Wow, what a nice car to start off with! A Mercedes SLK 230 is great for just cruising around town in, but it is not meant for any kind of serious racing. If you want it to look great, may i suggest the AMG package. Normally Mercedes are reliable cars, it' s just if anything does happen to them, it will be very costly to fix. But I would suggest a Lexus IS 300 if you wanted a sedan, this car has more power, is still a luxury brand, is VERY reliable, and will cost you less money (money that you can spend on options, heh heh). But if you still want to go with the SLK, then I would go for it! I think the SLK's are FAR better than BMW's Z3 or their new Z4. I have always liked Mercedes better than BMW's and always will!!!
