    Default Mercedes SL55 AMG

    Hi, has anyone got any first hand experience of the above?
    I am developing an unhealthy attraction based on that exhaust noise alone.
    The last time that happened I bought a 355, please help......

    Took one for a test drive and loved it. Be aware it is a GT though.

    Can see myself buying one in a few years when they replace the SL - should be nice and cheap by then.

    Awesome car and stonking value for money at the moment. IMO the best car in the world -but its a little boring. Don't bother taking it on track, its not that sort of car. They sound awesome as well.

    Stunning motor, would love to have one for it's everyday useability but depreciation is very high at the moment, worth waiting till replacement SL is launched.

    I know there have been some build quality issues in the past so worth doing your research on common faults.

    I owned one for about 6 months before I chopped it in for a GT3MK2.

    Loved the SL55, yes it's a GT but the power is endless and the comfort is amazing (massaging, air conditioned seats anyone?)

    Managed at worst to get 4mpg, but this was flat out (mine was derestricted)

    Thanks for all the feedback, now seriously looking and was wondering if anyone could throw any light on how much "wriggle room" dealers will have on the cars they are offering.
    They seem to be looking for around 58-60K for low mileage '03 cars.
    Any views on likely true price ?
    Thanks in advance.

    This is very fast this car was deliverd new to Ray Belm the famus La Mans racer and was derestricted by the factory so this car will go over 200 mph, finished in black with full black leather with the glass roof and as every extra including keyless go and TV and has coverd 35,000 miles with FMBSH this is a rare and very fast car.
