I do not know. I will make the final choice tomorrow. I will drive both cars back to back. I think for the money the Z is a better buy and more fun but the SLK is a car I can take on trips and is more grown up (I am 54).

I am sure no one REALLY cares but I am staying with the 350ZTR. After driving both cars back to back, I still think the 350Z Roadster (with auto) is quicker than the SLK350 (with auto)! I also find the driving postion better on the Z, in the SLK I could not see top of the gauges and could not see traffic lights without looking under the windshield top bar. So now all I have to do is wait for two more month for the car.

I think the SLK is a great looking, well made car that performs well...but the Z is just dead sexy. There's something about those rear flares and the basement seating position that few other cars can top.

What did you think regarding space in the cabin? Did you feel more cramped in the SLK? How about handling? Did the Z handle better?

Thanks

I felt more closed in in the SLK. There is not any place to store ANYTHING. The only storage area is the very small glove box. I think one reason Nissan made the seats so low is give the feeling of more head room. I think both cars handle well but the Z just felt more fun. When I get out of the SLK I just don't want it, but when I look at the specs, I keep thinking I should get it as it is more "grown-up". The most important reaction of course is when you are behind the wheel and I think the wins hands down.
