2005 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)

Review

My fourth Benz. No problems, just plain fun. Looks good, unbelievable power. Surprising amount of room with the top up. First thing I did was take a two week road trip from Minneapolis to Denver to South Padre, Texas and back. Plenty of room for golf clubs and all our gear. Was a short 5000 miles as fast as this car moves and I was ready to go again right after we got back. Once a day (sometimes more) I get complimented "great car". Might be the last passenger car I'll ever buy.

Best Features

Instant power, sound of the supercharged engine, fold down top, appearance.

Worst Features

Two inches more legroom for us taller guys would be great. Sound and navigation systems acceptable, but room for improvement. Of course, bring your checkbook (and credit cards, and home equity line of credit, and kids college fund) to buy it. These are nitpicks on the overall driving experience.
