2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster: Winter Top-Down Driving

February 1, 2013

L.A. has been suffering a cold spell lately. I think the rest of the country calls it winter. So even though it was 50 degrees and sunny, I just had to put the top of our 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster down. It was Friday and I felt like driving the long way in to work. No freeway. This uber-luxurious car inspires that sort of crazy behavior. The concerns of tangling up my long hair or it being too cold were quickly silenced during the drive.

Even going 50 mph my hair didn't fly everywhere thanks to the effective windblocker, which also served to contain the warmth emanating from the headrest's heater vent. Man, I love AirScarf! Pair that up with the seat heater and I'm in heaven. The adjustable vents accommodate any height. If this were my car, I'd drive with the top down every sunny-day chance I got, winter or no.
