Bought the car 6 years old. Upgraded to AMG 15" wheels and $800/rim alloy 3 piece. Low profile tires. This car is a dream. Very quiet with hard top off and can hear all Bose system. Corners like my Porsche did. Great service when needed.(not one major part in 5 yrs). Have spinal problems and yet can drive all day. Lot of punch. Best of 5 Mercedes I have owned. Others were sedans. Love the lines of this vintage. It is why I looked 3 years till the right one appeared. Take care of it and it takes care of you. 6 miles of gravel road/day and not one squeak yet. Can't say that for other brands I own for seconds. Stored in winter so no comment on winter handling.
Fully and automatically adjusts to your every need in positioning. Just plain pure pleasure. Much nicer than a '98 that I drove for 3 weeks. Easy up down convert to rag top.
As in all soft tops, would relish more storage for long trips. Wish it got 25 mi/gal. in town. CD changer could be more accessible.
