Without reservation this is the best
car I have owned. The styling is
fantastic and everything feels classy.
Looked at Jag, Lexus SC and magazie
previews of new cadillac--no
comparision in my judgment.
Styling, comfort (great seats),
convertible top mechanism,
performance, and res-sale value.
I would change only 2 things: switch
from CD to DVD based naviagation
system and CD player should be 6 disc
in dash like most competitors.
After owning and driving C4 Porsches,
this SL55 AMG is the best. It has the
torque of the Porsche Turbo and the fun
of a convertible without the
inconveniences of removing the hard
top. While the Porsche intimidated my
wife, the SL 55 AMG is wife friendly.
The stability management system was
comparable to the Porsche. The parking
assist, navigation system, and high
performance sound system was superior.
My favorite feature is the folding hard
top, roll bar with integrated
Having experience the advantages of the
all wheel drive of the C4 on and off
the race track (at high performance
driving schools), Mercedes Benz AMG
should introduce the 4matic all wheel
drive to the drive train.
i have made it. driving this car shows
i know automobles. i have owned bmw,
Ferrari and many many cars. The car
handles like it is on a rail. With the
top down and the roll bar up i can
still maintain a conversation with my
passenger without yelling. I like
driving the car by myself and just get
into the driving and shifting.
has to be the top and the roll bar. In
Hawaii it will be sunning and than all
of a sudden it will rain. At a stop
light. No problem 17 secounds later
the top is up and i will remain dry.
The top is down 95% of the time. My
wife has no complants about messing
I liked the comfort seats i had in my
bmw. i think mb should come out with
16 way power seats for more back
support. The paint is a little thin
and will show scatches easy. I have a
black 500. The last thing is to come
out with larger tires and different
wheels with chrome.
The sl 55 is the best car I had ever
had.I have 10 cars.I like the sl 55 the
best.The have a thing you can push (sos)
if there is ever a emergency witch will
call mb care.If you want a good nice
car get the sl 55
I like the gps system.Emergency
keys.The airbags witch call the police
if they go off.The driving system
They should have a thing on the car
that will see if the car is floding and
call the police if so.
