Had this for a year. After investing for minor items [about $3,000] it is a new car. The lines are timeless. Great performance at any speed. Rides like a magic carpet. This is one great vehicle. No regrets.

The looks this car gets are off the
charts, but they come at a hefty
price. I only drive my SL500 6 months a
year. Therein lies the problem; already
expensive cost of ownership,
exacerbated by spreading the costs over
only six months. That said, I still
keep it, and wait for the spring to
bring nice weather. The thrill of
hitting the accelerator on this 300+ HP
beast is beyond compare. Driving with
the top down on a nice day is one of
the finest auto experiences around.
Then, pulling into valet parking of a
crowded cafe or club is bound to stroke
the ego of any redblooded American male.

I've loved this car; it's my sixth pre-
owned Mercedes. It's red and gets a lot
of attention; it has been reliable and
fun. I bought a 1991 Mercedes station
wagon for the dogs to ride in; I'm
picky about my baby! It flies and is
beautiful inside and out. I'm cautious
about parking it -- it gets door dings
and scratches and white paint, so it's
touched up once or twice a year. People
apparently are jealous and vandalize it.
