not sure where you live but in the U.S. the SL320 wasn't available in 2000. I'd recommend the SL500....with the sport package and xenon lights.

1988 IROC-Z Lots of boost
2004 SRT4 Stage 2
2007 CLK550 Cabriolet

Personally, I don't think any MB w/ an S in its model name should have an engine smaller than a 500. When you go for that level of automobile, skimping on HP just doesn't make sense. Get a 500!

Don't believe everything you think

That would be better than a 320 or 420, but I've read that they have some problems w/ reliability and do not preform much better for the large additional HP and cost.
