Overall:

The vehicle lacks a wood/leather steering wheel and gearshift knob. It also lacks the pano roof. Other than that, I hope to view the vehicle next week. It’s overpriced, thus it has been sitting for almost 4 months. Desirable only to a few as, while they are good vehicles, parts are extremely scarce and expensive if you find what you need.

Overall:

One Of Merecedes Best Modern Convertibles. — For ten years (since 2004) this has been my summer joy. The 1998 SL500 is a classic Mercedes luxury convertible, comfortable and reliable enough for a summer cross-country expedition. What a joy to jaunt through the mountains in fall weather with the top down and the seat heaters on!

Pros: Very powerful, classic Mercedes convertible with rock solid 5.0L engine and indestructible transmission.

Cons: The price you pay for all that power (5.0L V8 and ~315bhp) is gas economy, but it still gets about 22MPG for me on the highway.
