Pros

Classic design beauty. Good power. Solid engineering and built from high quality materials. Better than a lot of the later model SL's

Cons

The hydraulics for the top fails and it is very expensive to fix. I would like another 100-150 hp in the car.

One Of My All-time Favorite Cars! — That being said keep in mind that one of my other all-time favorite cars is the 1985 VW Westfalia Vanagon. That might take away from my credibility. I love my SL500. I think it is a high point in Mercedes Benz engineering. The car is so solid. It has a lot of power. The engine is a thing of simple beauty. It can be expensive to maintain. It handles beautifully and is very comforable. I deal used cars so I have driven hundreds of different cars. A lot of them are between junk and nothing special. A few are better classified between practical and reliable. I get excited by only a few of the cars I come in contact with. I will only mention cars I have driven, because there are a number of great cars out there. I drive a 98 Berlinetta and a 02 Maranello. Both are amazing cars but the Berlinetta gets tiring to drive after awhile because of the stiff tuning. The Maranello is more powerful and more comforable and a real thrill to drive, but it ends up in the shop too often. There are a few other cars that I think highly of, but nothing is more satisfying than my 1995 SL500. I love everything about that car! It is fast (my personal top speed has been 160mph and it felt pretty solid at that speed. It is comfortable enough that I could drive it all day!

Great Car For The Price — I had possession of this car for around a month. Driving the car was great. It had that luxury ride in a sport coupe. I guess that's why it cost $120K when it was new back in 1995! The only bad thing was that it does take a lot of gas. I guess being a V12 motor, that is to be expected!

Mecedes' Are Always Good. — Sitting to low was the only downside, it was a great car, comfortable, pretty, (at the time) and ofcourse a convertable. It was a costly car to purchase but I never had a problem besides a flat tire, it was under warranty anyway. I don't recall the exact gas mileage it got, but don't remember thinking it was expensive to fill the gas tank.

Sl R129 — Timeless roadster from Mercedes-Benz, a modern classic. Legendary Mercedes-Benz reliability. It's a heavy car, but the straight six will deliver the needed performance and acceleration. When well taken care of, it will lead a trouble-free life. Comes with a soft and hard top.

Buy It And Get A Better Job — If you are looking at this in hopes for a review, look at the brief description, as you will get it there. Only thing i forgot to mention is how the parts cost an arm, a leg, a tounge, and your first born
