2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL500 2dr Convertible (5.0L 8cyl 7A)

Review

The automatic hard top makes this car a pleasure to drive in our cold Chicago winters. No more drafty canvas tops. The car has impressive handling and an interior to die for. I can get my golf clubs in the trunk with top down unlike the Cadillac XLR. Everything about this car is refined. If I needed more speed, the SL600 does 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds; however, that would just get me in trouble. The ventilated seats and keyless go are great options. This is no doubt the finest roadster available short of the SLR.

Favorite Features

Parktronic, Keyless Go, Ventilated Seats. Parktronic prevents scraping the bottom side of the front bumper on cement parking bumpers.

Suggested Improvements

The $2000 cell phone option is the pits. Mercedes says they will have new phones soon with more options.
