After driving a 2003 SL 500 for nearly 2 years,I was able to upgrade 2 years at an attractive year-end price. I thought it would be about the same car, but the improvements, especially the new 7 forward speed transmission, makes this the finest performing Benz in 5 that I have owned in the past several years. The driving and performance experience is exhilerating.
Seven speed transmission, the keyless operation, the new stereo system, the new navigation system and the 16 second retractable top that is as tight as the best sedan I have ever driven when closed.
The above features over my 2003 model are all I need to meet the the most discriminating desired improvements.
