Vehicle

2003 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.5L 8cyl S/C 5A)

Review

The car is great, except that I really wish the car had 6sp manual transmission. The auto tranny doesn't do the engine justice at all. The car runs surprisingly slow compared with all the 'hype' I had read. I guess my expectations were too high.

Favorite Features

Sport seats with cooling seats, braking system and great sounding exhaust, stealth- most people think it's a 'regular' SL500

Suggested Improvements

Needs 19" wheels, manual transmission
