SLS as an everyday driver
By carnut130 on
2013 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT 2dr Coupe (6.2L 8cyl 7AM)
I am retired and have a 2013 Mercedes sls gt amg coupe.
In the past I have primarily Mercedes SLs, Porsche 911s, Jaguars, & Corvettes.
This car is my everyday driver.
I chose it for a number of reasons.
1st, as a retiree who plays golf alot and plays recripicals in the summer, the car must hold a large golf bag in the trunk .. and it does.
Secondly, it needs to very reliable and cost effective to maintain ... it is.
In fact it is so reliable, the extended warrenty from factory 4 years to 7 years was only an additional $3500!
Thirdly, it had to be beautiful and the Gullwing is.
By the way, my wife is 70, 5'2" and has no trouble with the door.
I love the sound, the quality, the dependability and the art of it.
My favorites are the gullwing doors, the sound.
The back-up camera and blind spot assist take out any blind spots.
Power doors and drunk lid would be a sexy addition.
