Just purchased my 5th SL and might be the best. Full option 2002 model with 152000 kms and appears tight as a drum. The FSH and one lady owner might help, plus she never lowered the roof during ownership!! Love the Radar Cruise and cooled seats here in Dubai, had 2 Sl55's 02 and 04, but felt they always wanted to blast down the road and noisy. Loved them but never in love with them. I think for just short of £7000, there is nothing better to play in the Sun.... Everything works, except the Pulse seats (common fault ) will see what the dealer estimates next week, but was not a deal breaker. You need to have it inspected, especially the hydraulic susphension before you buy as I did.
1) Radar Cruise
3) Keyless Go
5) The Looks
6) Parking Sensors (front and Rear)
7) Everything Else......
1) Sat Nav CD to DVD (addressed in newer model)
2) Nicer Standard Wheels
3) Paddle Shift (again addressed)
4) 4 seats, so mor people can share the fun...
