"Second SL - first was a 380 that I still own. Bought this used 2005 SL500 with 11600 miles because of the dramatic drop in retail value the first 4-5 years or so. This model has amazing differences over my 1982 380. Safety features are what MB is famous for as well performance. I have owned this one since Jul 09 and so far no issues. Great ride and curb appeal. Wish I could have afforded one when I was in my late 20's!"
"What a dream car! After you have driven an SL55 AMG, anything less will be "uncivilized".
The car is a real BB with Brain and Beauty. What a "Head Turner"!
The only set back is the possibility to damage the tires in those potholes although, that car was not meant to be driven on bad roads anyway."
"Have had now for 3 years and love it. Drive it as daily commuter in sun (top down) or snow (top down and heater on), love it. Got AMG version because of the hopeful quality and reliability improvements over standard MB SL. Havent had one problem as of yet. Really drive well in all conditions. Snow tires on in winter and drives w confidence. Wet roads w performance tires can be scary but up lifitng at same time. Automatic hard top convertible makes it all worth it. Would buy again and again."
