This is also my 3rd SL of this series (prev '04 and '06). Tried to swith to either XKR or 650. Just not comparable. Love the improved handling, firmer brakes and increased power. Quality still perfect. Note to other buyers. Make sure you get the Michelin Tires (versus Continentals). Better ride.
Firm coupe with the top up. Solid, heavy and quick. Consistant. AMG wheels and grill, very distinctive. Real GT tourer. Like the fact that the CD changer shuffles across all discs.
Also have an S550, would prefer the Nav system from the new S class. Would prefer the parking sensor option not also require the adaptive cruise control.
