I purchased my SL55 AMG in Feb of 2010.
The bad... had to repair air suspension on front and back.
The good... MB significantly reduced the cost of the repair.
The excitement of most new car purchases ware off in a month or so.
Not this car.
I look forward to driving this car every day.
Performance is very good, looks are great with top up or down.
I can't belive how well it handles based on the weight being over 4,300 lbs.
It goes where ever you point it with plenty of power on tap.
It is a shame this care does not come with a license to speed.
Pay the extra cost for the AMG.
It is definately worth it.

Great car..if you lie performance in a good looking package, then this is your car. i upgraded my heat exchanger, intercooler pump, and my crank shaft pulley to really make the car a BEAST!!! you can easily add an ECU upgrade and make this car a monster to drive! have fun

I bought this car because I wanted a toy. Something to drive on nice days with the top down. The car is beautiful. People stop me all the time to tell me what a nice car it is. It looks great weather the top is up or down. I don't really get to open it up because here in Chicago there is always too much traffic but I have driven it late at night and the car is a rocket. It sounds great when you start it and press on the gas and heads will turn to look where the roar is coming from.
