I ordered this car after 9/11 and
waited un til I did not have to pay a
premium (actually received the car in
10/02). A squeek took a few visits to
fix, but M-B did "everything" to take
care of it. It is a dream to drive --
hard to believe it is so firm, even
with the top down. Absolutely no cowl
shake. A real looker.
Perfect fit. Style. Hard-top
Cannot safely use the cup holders on
dash (coffee/soda will spill on car).
The CD based navigation system is
dated. I am looking at 2005 SL55 and
SL600, for more power, even though
SL500 has plenty.
