This has to be one of the most luxurious vehicles I've ever been in let alone owned. Fast mover, head turner and a perfect fit for a female (all the controls are really at arms reach.) I see ppl complaining about no back seat. I believe it wasn't made for ppl to sit back there, but for lower insurance premiums by technically being a 4 seater. Bentley has a new model out with the same "issue", that I can assure you they will not be addressing. It's done on purpose. Sure has more room than a SLK which has no space behind the seats.
Extremely comfortable, every stinkin feature you could ask for, AWESOME sound system (you go Mark Levinson!), great pickup...I could go on and on.
This is my 2nd '05 SC430 in 7 months. My 1st one got toasted when a guys car next to mine caught aflame. Models produced in '05 have a different vendors nav system than the '04 produced and they eliminated all my POI's in a 15 mi radius from my home. Hopefully the update due in fall will have them.
