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.

They didn’t say the seat was torn nor did they say the tow hitch cover missing or the scratch or any on rear bumper

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.
