This is the third SL I have owned, having purchased new a 1986 and a 1996 now my 2006, which by the way I still own all three. All three cars are completely different, However the 2006 is by far my favorite. It has all the features I need and more. I love being able to have a hardtop with the convertable ability. The 2 previous cars were a little difficult at times. I had to park the hardtop for the summer with a 2 person process of on or off. The look is beautiful. I have to say though all three are beautiful.
All the gadgets including intergrated phone, keyless go, voice command. I love the punch it has off the line for an SL 500. Sirius satellite radio is awesome. I continue to remind myself I paid the same price for my 1996 SL 500, ten years later, what a bargin.
Provide some kind of coco mat for the light tan rugs, which got filthy the first day.
