Newbe.. sl55 or sl550 or keep my slk55???
I am new to your site....I am the original owner of a 05 slk55 which is about to go out of warranty. It just turned 11000 on the clock. It has been my baby and is still in perfect condition...I am thinking of getting an extended warranty or possibility trading the car in on a 07 sl550? I know they are not the same animal, but with the hp bump up of the newer 550 I thought the performance might be close to my slk55. I am also thinking the sl would be a better over the road car as I plan on taking some long road trips in the future. If I make the switch, I hope I dont miss the way my slk can be tossed around at will, and the out of the hole power it has......Another option would be an 03 or 04 sl55. This would probably be the best of both worlds, but my big concern would be the reliability of the car and the repair costs involved....Any suggestions or thoughts would be appreciated...Thanks
