Fastest Car I Ever Owned. — I liked everything about this car. Oh man specially on traffic people cant stop looking at it. It is definetely beautiful car. It is a big time head turner. I remember girls at gas station telling me its a nice car and walking away with big all smile. I get so much attention. It might not be good for girlfriend hehe. Because you will get really good looking girls if you are intented to do so..

Pros

Hardtop convertible.   Easy up & down.   Lots of storage areas in cockpit.   Heated/Cooled Seats, Luxury.

Cons

No Bluetooth, Gas Mileage could be better

Sweet Convertible — I choose the Mercedes over Porsche 911 and Corvette Convertibles because of the built in hardtop. Other considerations were reliability & maintenance costs. I've only had it a day but I was impressed with all of the features it has and the build quality.

Great Bang For Your Buck ! — You never know how fun it is to drive until you try the SL. So many cool features, surprisingly good mpg on the freeway. Hard-top !!! you can't beat that. mine had the panoramic hard-top, can't beat that ! If you can afford one, just do it. Cheers !

You can put the roof down!

It Looks Amazing. — stuff breaks-get a warranty. Mercedes Benz should bring back the "Orion blue" color, it's the best. Buy used, new is too expensive. Cup holders are annoying because they are in front of the nav. I love this car a lot.

Absolutely Beastly Yet Smooth And Gentle To Drive If You Wish — Superb acceleration 0-100 near 10 s. almost supercar performance; 0-60 4.3 in my hands. Speed drive shifting is a bit slow by modern standards. Drive it like a pussycat, it doesn't care. It is massively solid (but heavy) tight as an open-top can be and the hard top retractable roof is the best. Interior is spartan, utilitarian German, 2004 exterior styling far better than modern angular looks to me. Is expensive as it is thirsty yet on cruise control at 80 m.p.h. gets over 20.0. Very very fun to drive. BEst feature? Pass anyone any time (foolish amounts of torque - 516 of them).

The Best Of Sl — i really like the car because of its great handling and the rear drive option and the way it drifting around corners and not to forget the speed of 552 bhp and also from 0 -100 km/h in 5.2 sec that's pretty fast

Agent Slick's White Beast — Is a Beast, it ain't quick, but give it a few seconds and you'll hear the engine roar when I am passing next to you and... don't worry, you'll have time to read the license plate... Yup... AGT SLCK... If you want to know the MPG, then you must drive a Prius... this car is all about Style and Power...
