    We are looking at getting an Sl55, and I was wondering if anyone has any info on problems with the car that owners are having, or if anyone can point me to a good forum where I can ask around there.

    extremely jealous. actually i would take the CL55 over the SL..but i'm just weird. if your talking about the new one, anyone who spends ~$130k on a car isn't going to admit that they bought a piece of shit, so enjoy it! i know i would =)

    I saw an SL55 AMG while in Vancouver about a month ago, and I can truthfully say it is one of the sexiest cars I have ever seen.

    UK Automotive TV Journalist legend Jeremy Clarkson just bought a new SL55 AMG. Can't think of a higher recommendation than that.

    The only thing someone can complain about is the price.

    I agree, I'd like one in every colour :(

    You know the Mercedes-Benz SL was voted one of the top-ten most "gay" cars last year. Saw it on TopGear a couple of months ago. And somehow that fits with the scary homo-erotic path this thread seems to be taking.

    :rofl: I dunno, the SL doesn't look that gay to me... Maybe if it was painted purple with a giant cock on the side...
