Coming off a 06' SL, I can't tell you what a world of difference in quality this car has over the SL. Obviously totally different vehicles, but this car is fun in every drive scenario. Almost everyday I get interesting looks and comments. The new Bloodlines commercial has recently caused two episodes where I was asked to give it a rev! Heading to Porsche Driving School in B-Ham this fall with friends for golf and driving.
Acceleration and control with the manual. There was a reason I like to drive my X3 winter car over the SL. It is manual too.
