My vehicle was in staorage for a period of time. It was in great shape when I purchased it. What I did not know was the hydraulic air pistons that operated the roof system were dried out and brittle causing them to leak. The replacemnet cost was close to $4000
I like the style and looks of my SL500. It is a weekend driver for me. I enjoy driving up to the counrty club and getting compliments on my car from friends. My friends compliment me on my car.
