New guy thinking about SL's

I have been looking into getting a mb some time in the next year or so and thought I would talk to some real people to get some feedback. Currently I have a 98 eclipse gsx that I've rebuilt pretty much from the ground up and it will be good for around 520 whp when it gets tuned this spring/summer. I love my eclipse but as I look into some other options I see I could have an incredible car for roughly what I've spent so far. I've got receipts for around 30k for my eclipse right now and I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to enjoy driving it around as it is approaching the limits of streetability.

I am looking to meet some people who own sl55s or sl600's to get feedback on how they like them as well as annual costs (repairs, INSURANCE, and any mods). I am currently 24 and finishing up paying off school and credit cards. I plan to be seriously looking into sl's some time a year or so from now.
