SL600 vs. SL55

I've recently began looking into trading my 03 SL55 for a 04 SL600 which I would add the RennTech package onto. However, I was told today that I should stay away from the SL600 from a Broker because they are not selling.

But when looking around I find much fewer SL600s available vs. the SL55s.

Any insight would be appreciated.

RE: SL600 vs. SL55

Well, I think you just answered your own question! The SL600 is indeed a more rare vehicle than the SL55. The broker knows this and is therefore trying to steer you to a car that will be easier for him to find, which of course will result in a quicker sale for him. However, I believe that you are correct to continue your search for the right SL600 because only this vehicle, of all the SL's, can be upgraded so massively for such few dollars. I mean really, the gains in HP and torque are absolutely huge. (increase of aprox 125-150HP and 150-190LBS of torque) Unbelievable! And all for only $6,400!! Fact is, you can not upgrade any other SL to this degree for any where near this price. Actually, you would have to buy the SL65 and put the RennTech package on that to get only similar to slightly better preformance. So, again, I say the best value of the entire SL line with all things considered, preformance as well as comfort and appearance, the SL600 with the AMG sport package simply can not be beat!! Now go get one, you won't be dissapionted.

Good Luck! PS. Find another broker at once!!

I have a CL600 and a friend has a CL55, both engines are amazing but like Mark said the 600 is the better of the two, and i agree completely with getting a 600 with the AMG package,... best of both worlds.

Without taking price in consideration SL600 will be my choice - V12 badge is something only a few cars wear.
