Pros

Very smooth, torquey, powerful ride. Handles great! So solid it can go through a cawash and not leak a drop inside with the convertible top.

Cons

I get the occasional warning ticket since it has no place for a front plate and I have this thing about defacing such beauty by drilling holes in "art". Been registered 11 years in TX, why change now?

Ageless Head Turning Rocket Sled. — These tradiotionally will need a regular replacement of the mass air flow sensor, so keep one handy. No tools are needed, but since you'll never know when they will give up, 2 yrs, 4yrs?? just keep 1 handy. About $250 from Bosch, ONLY use Bosch, voice of experience. Performance has a few special needs, as you can expect, oil is 0-W40, about 9 qts, and mobile 1 is one of the only ones that has it on hand at local parts stores. Other than that, 16 spark plugs and wires are the only other visible extra going in on a regular tune up I saw. The extra costs are minimal compared to the maximum enjoyment the majority of the time, and the way I feel in this car is amazing. Oh, except I keep wondering why there's a plastic rear window in the convertible top of my 100k sports car..... The hard top is like new and here in TX hardly ever sees the car, but is a great decoration for my bedroom.

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

Mercedes Benz Sl 600 — Car is absolutely fantastic! Purchased the car with only 5k and it did need repair. Probably from sitting was the cause of the repairs. The only down fall is the braking performance. Should have had crossed drilled front rotors. Car too heavy for brakes installed.
