One major reason I drive a CL and not an SL is because I need the back seat for my dog. The seat there is so tight that it's really only good for dogs or small children. Adults only for short distances.

The other consideration is that I do a lot of highway driving and the S platform gives me a slightly better feeling with respect to the tractor-trailers that infest our highway system coast-to-coast. They might just roll over an SL and keep on going.

HOWEVER, the SL gives you coupe and convertible in the same car, so if you're sure you'll never (or even seldom) need the back seat, I'd vote for the SL. It's a spectacular piece of machinery and stunning to look at as well.

Wouldn't consider the BMW for a minute as I too think it's butt-ugly.
