Last Of The Engineers' Mercedes — Great car, possibly a future classic. Lovely build quality. Not just for jaded housewives. Great color. Everyone loves to watch the top mechanism work its magic. V-8 makes the right noises without the thrashing sounds of a lesser car.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Versatile, fast, smooth, beautiful timeless styling, reliable, quiet, comfortable, good mileage if you drive nice, plenty of room in the trunk and behind seats for luggage or groceries.

Cons

Drinks a lot of premium gas if you drive fast, only 2 seats, a stiffer ride, expensive (but worth it!)

Fast, Classy, Versatile And Beautiful — It's a great car that turns heads. It corners extremely fast, and is luxuriously comfortable. My wife and I couldn't agree on a convertible that we both loved until we drove the SL500. I wanted safety and the nice hardtop for the winter is a big plus. She just wanted anything with a top that dropped, but didn't realize how much difference a good fitting quiet top and a safe (and Quick!!)car makes when compared to a Sebring or some other twisty little cheap tin box.

R129 Sl500 — Overall a great car, affordable now as a used car, great touring car that you can drive hours in and feel comfortable. Fit and finish are very high quality, timeless styling and with the right set of wheels is a real head turner. Mine came with a Panoramic glass hardtop from the factory, a highly desirable option.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Fun Car To Drive! — It's the hottest 1999 SL500 I've ever seen. Smoothe and quiet at 100+ speeds. Road car for sure, or just cruising with the top down and people staring! Bose stereo is standard with cd changer and satellite radio. Has hard and soft tops!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Great First Car — This is a really fun handling car and can get great gas milage if you drive it with out your foot on the floor the whole time! the power is there when you need it because of its big 5L V8.
