Just found out that the dealer where I traded in my Wind has sold it to someone who came all the way up to Kent from Falmouth; I've got no more detail that that; to buy it.

Perhaps he/she will join the forum so if you get a new member from that area it could be AA61JAN.

Let's hope they get as much pleasure from it as I did.

The 54 plate SLK 350 Auto which I bought continues to live up to expectations.

I've left the auto in comfort mode as an engine with 270 bhp & a flat torque curve starting at 2500 rpm doesn't really need to be revved to still out perform the majority of cars.

Best wishes to all winders.

Hi Sea Dog,

It was initially advertised at £4250; quite a high price for a Wind; although I don't know if that was achieved.

ADG Sevenoaks; the dealer; had quite a range of "interesting" cars in their showroom; when I was there; from Aston Martin Porsche & Bristol through to more prosaic machines.

Let's hope the new owner gets as much pleasure from it as we did.

Probably the high asking price was related to being kept in great condition by the previous owner Pittstop 👍

Do you still get pangs of jealousy when you see a Wind on the road or parked up ?..you must have some good memories of your road trips in yours 😎

Excellent memories of all the European trips & it's perfect reliability during such long runs.

The need for an auto was what forced me to change. If there had been a Wind auto I'd have gone for one!

Having bitten the bullet I had to decide on a boring auto or a more "geriatric hooligan" option.

The 2004 SLK 350 & 1947 old geezer both fit the latter description!!
