Marvelous — i love this car the best i had ! i had vacuum leaks done and idle control valve,cam shaft sensor replaced and the car runs like new ! very strong it feels like your in a space shuttle. my advise if your contemplating purchasing one do it!

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

Pros: 1st generation of car. The best of both worlds sporty and luxury ....looks and feels good and fast and still turns heads!

Cons: expensive repairs, gas guzzler i think it gets 12mi in city and 16 to 18 hwy, challenge  to find parts

A+ — It was my first Mercedes and first convertible... It was a great car to drive (not super comfortable for long rides due to the seating position). The gas mileage is not excessive for a V8 however the maintenance costs are pretty high.

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

Pros: Almost everything

Cons: Maintenance costs

Every Petrol Head Should Drive It Atleast Once In Their Life Time.. — Was built 15 years before it's time..the performance is tweeked abit but not much different from what Merc put into it, after all this years, the body is just as good and ofcourse I keep the car in the quality it deserves, no word on appearance, that you just see for yourself, "beautiful", well the gas is not cheap but for this am willing to drive and be hungry, maintenace is only a bother when looking for parts but that is a rarity, she just keeps moving. She is so much fun to drive own and take care of..

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

Pros: Perfection

Cons: Getting spare parts

Gas Milage Is Pretty Good. About 8kms/liter — Strong, solid. Safest convertable made. Can beat the car mechanically and as long as its maintained isnt going to give you any trouble as the car was designed to do 200mph and still feel in control. Gas milage is pretty good. about 8kms/liter Amazingly fun to drive. Especially with the top off

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

Pros: It's cool car.

Cons: Expensive parts.

This Car Is Almost 20 Years Old? — This car is fantastic to drive! I had it at work and immediately knew I had to keep it for myself. The build quality is perfection, and the performance is over-the-top for the time period. I highly recommend it! I have noticed, though, that parts can be rather expensive.

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

Pros: Build Quality.  Engine.

Cons: 4 Speed Gearbox.  Parts are very expensive.
